Arab’s SugarFest has been canceled for 2020.

It was scheduled for Labor Day weekend, but will now be held on Labor Day weekend of 2021.

“It was something that the community and made such a success last year,” organizers said in a press release.

“How do you cancel such a festival?” the press release asked.

“You do it after much thought, consideration, prayer and logic. You do it with the support of city leaders, law enforcement, emergency management and volunteers,” it said. “You do it after consulting with other festival and event coordinators across the state and region who are making the same hard decisions. You do it when the health risks of a pandemic far outweigh the enjoyment of a one day event and place the safety of the public and the integrity of the event above all else.”
