ABERDEEN DAY 2020 CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 CONCERNS
ABERDEEN TOWNSHIP, N.J. (9/04/20)—Aberdeen Township today announced that it will be cancelling the 2020 edition of its annual Aberdeen Day event, which had been scheduled for September 26.
“It saddens me to announce to the residents of Aberdeen and surrounding towns, that we must cancel our largest and most popular event,” said Mayor Fred Tagliarini. “This town-wide celebration has steadily grown over the years, and now draws thousands of attendees. But in this time of COVID-19, it would be wrong to invite that many families to our town, creating an unsafe environment for our Police, Fire Department and other First Responders, along with other township employees, volunteers, vendors and guests.”
He added: “In 2021, Aberdeen Day will return with our full schedule to celebrate our great town. We look forward to seeing all of you next year.”
