Another spring tradition has been wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) says it will not be hosting its Maple Syrup Festival and related activities at Westfield Heritage Village.
A statement released by the HCA says that in light of the ongoing pandemic and after reviewing the current provincial restrictions, it has decided that offering those activities this year would not be “in the best interest of the public, staff and volunteers.”
It’s the second event cancellation involving the HCA in as many weeks.
Last Tuesday, the conservation authority confirmed that the spring Christie Antique & Vintage Show has been cancelled.
