The event typically drew crowds of more than 25,000 to the village and included the participation of local restaurants and businesses and featured hundreds of arts and craft vendors, about 40 food vendors and entertainment such as street performers, event organizers said.

This year’s event was to be held Oct. 9. It also was canceled for last fall due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The decision does not come easily, as we know many local businesses and nonprofits count on the income they receive from this popular event, as does the Chamber itself,” the chamber board said in announcing the cancellation.
