Wow. This is a stunner.....at least to me. It's one of those things you just expect to be there......State Fair.....Basilica Block Party.....Winter Carnival AND......Grand Old Day......well, not this year.
The 2019 Grand Old Day has been canceled by the nonprofit that runs it, which is seeking to "keep the event fresh for 2020."
It'll be the first time the event has not gone ahead since it started 45 years ago, with the decision announced by the Grand Avenue Business Association on Facebook.
"It was a difficult and unanimous decision but one that the board of directors made to keep the event fresh for 2020," said interim president Allison Penner-Hurst.
