Because of the high number of COVID-19 cases in our area, the Secret City Festival has decided to cancel the Veterans Celebration .
While disappointed that we will not be able to honor our veterans at this time, safety for everyone in our community is our utmost concern. Nevertheless, we look forward to seeing you at our Halloween Concert on Sunday, October 31st at 3:30 pm at A.K. Bissell Park Pavillion.
