CLIFTON FORGE, Va. (WFXR) – A staple of autumn in the Alleghany Highlands has been canceled, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
For decades, residents of the Alleghany Highlands flocked to downtown Clifton Forge on a mid-October weekend to enjoy vendors, live entertainment, fun, fellowship and “Shriner Diner” donuts. This year, because of COVID-19, the annual Clifton Forge Shrine Club Fall Festival has been canceled.
Organizers are saying that the current guidelines currently in effect due to the pandemic have been a major obstacle that could not be overcome and they hope everyone can come out for next year’s 50th Fall Festival.
