Event organizers have canceled Fawn Grove Olde Tyme Days due to concerns over COVID-19.

The 31st annual event, scheduled from June 26 to June 28, would have benefited Citizens Volunteer Fire Co. and included live bands, kids activities and flea markets.

"Please know that this decision was not made lightly and we waited as long as possible before coming to this final decision," event organizers said in a Facebook statement Sunday.

The Fawn Grove Olde Tyme Days is the most recent local carnival to be canceled this year over coronavirus fears.

Organizers said they are hoping to plan smaller events later this year.

 "We did not want to cancel the show, but due to the liability and current state guidelines we felt that canceling was our best choice for Olde Tyme Days," the Facebook post reads.
