Charro Days Fiesta Inc. Board of Directors met Wednesday evening to decide whether or not to hold Charro Days events next year because of the coronavirus.

The commission voted to table the item and will review it at a later date.

Charro Days Fiesta President Henry LeVrier’s  said in a statement. “The Charro Days Board of Directors voted on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 to table an agenda item regarding the status of the 2021 Charro Days Fiesta. Further information will be provided in the near future.”

Last month, Charro Days Inc. voted to cancel this year’s Christmas parade because of the pandemic.

On its Facebook Page, the board stated “The decision was made due to the uncertainty of the pandemic and the health and safety of all parade participants as well as the citizens of our community.”

In September, the board of directors of Sombrero Festival voted to cancel the 2021 Sombrero Festival because of the pandemic.
