Mokena Pride Fest cancelled because of coronavirus
MOKENA — The organizers of Mokena Pride Fest announced Tuesday that they would be cancelling the 2020 event.
From their post on the Facebook event:
It is with a heavy heart and an abundance of caution that Instill Pride and the Pride Fest Planning Committee announce the cancellation of Pride Fest Mokena 2020. The health crisis we are in the midst of is unprecedented, and none of us can really predict when life will return to normal. Rather than try and put together a Fest we can all be proud of in a very short time period, and potentially risk the health of our attendees, we are erring on the side of caution. We will bring Pride Fest Mokena back in 2021 – bigger and better than ever! Please listen to the advice of health officials, and stay safe and healthy!Instill Pride
