SummerFest will not be coming to St. Marys this year.

In a statement received Friday, the SummerFest Committee, along with the St. Marys Area Chamber of Commerce and the city of St. Marys announced that it has decided that it is in the best interest of the community to cancel SummerFest for 2020.

"We have spent untold hours trying to bring our community a bright spot to be able to hand some hope and happiness," the statement said. "This decision did not come easy and we fought a good fight."

The city of St. Marys intends to hold trick-or-treat night from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 29.

If residents are uncomfortable participating, there is no need to do so.

The decision is up to parents if they want their children to participate and up to residential households if they want to hand out treats.

Participants can take basic precautionary measures per COVID-19 guidelines for a safe and enjoyable trick or treat.
