Urban League’s community festival cancelled

ST. PETERSBURG – The Pinellas County Urban League’s annual Easter season community festival, which was scheduled this year for Saturday, April 11 at Campbell Park, has been cancelled. The reason for canceling the festival, which brings joy to families and their friends, was to limit the potential for participants catching the coronavirus.

The popular event, co-sponsored by Healthy Start, the City of St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg College, and a host of other public agencies, was scrapped when the city, following national guidelines, ordered the closure of events where more than 10 people were likely to gather.

Social distancing is the primary tactic being used to prevent people who’ve contracted the virus from infecting others, through coughing and sneezing.
