White Pigeon cancels festival

White Pigeon Days is taking the year off.

The two-day festival, which traditionally features food vendors, fireworks and a lengthy parade, was to have taken place July 10-11.

Bekah Carr, a member of the White Pigeon Community Association, said finances were at the root of the cancellation.

She said right now would typically be the time festival organizers start soliciting financial donations. Considering the state of things, and on the heels of Graphic Packaging announcing it is closing its White Pigeon plant at the end of June, Carr said she couldn’t in good conscience ask the community for money.

She said the association has already identified July 9-11 as the dates for the 2021 White Pigeon Days Festival.
