The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of another popular event, this time the 2020 Taree Night Bazaar.
The bazaar was set to be held in November, in what has proved in the past to be an ideal time for those looking for early Christmas gifts.
Organisers posted a statement on Facebook to break the news to disappointed patrons.
"This has been a tough decision for us to make, but with everything considered, we know that it's the right call," the statement said.
Despite the easing of some restrictions across the State, there is still uncertainty about mass public gatherings.
Given the unpredictable nature of the virus and potential breakout in future waves, it was a wise decision to call the event off three months out.
"The simple fact is we don't know and cannot predict what restrictions will be in place at the time of our event," the statement continued.
"The health and safety of our patrons and participants is of the utmost importance to us."
The 2019 edition of the bazaar was hit by rain, which was welcomed considering the bushfires earlier that month.
Here's hoping 2021 will be a better year for organisers of both events.
