Marion Town Party canceled because of EEE

Aug 13, 2019

MARION — In light of the critical risk level of Eastern Equine Encephalitis in the area, and town property closures in the evening, Marion Town Party organizers decided to cancel the annual event.

The organizers considered moving the party to an earlier time, but realized that a time change had negatively impacted the event in the past. 

“While the Town Party is a beloved end of summer event, protecting the health and safety of those attending, along with our many volunteers is the primary reason for this decision,” organizers wrote.
