One of the area's most popular annual events has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On a post of its Facebook page, St. Michael's Fair announced that for just the second time since the event debuted in 1954, the fair would not happen.

On Facebook, St. Michael's Fair is proud to call itself the " the oldest and largest fair and carnival in the Lower Bucks County area."

The fair, also known as the "Party on the Parkway," takes place on the property of St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church on Levittown Parkway.

The event traditionally takes in late-June/early-July, and if you have ever driven near the property at around that time, you can't the sights and sounds of the carnival.

Based on a Facebook post on May 2, fair organizers were hoping that this year's event could still happen.

As expected, the St. Michael's Fair is one of many similar events that have announced cancellations due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

A website called carnivalwarehouse.com has several articles posted about canceled events, including 2 other fairs in Pennsylvania - the York State Fair and the Erie County Fair.

One of our area's other largest carnivals, the St. Gregory the Great Family Carnival, has been postponed indefinitely, but organizers are still holding a 50/50 raffle that will draw a winner on June 20.

As we enter June it will be interesting to see what happens with area 4th of July fireworks events. We will keep you posted.
