Emo Holly Daze the latest victim of COVID-19

 

The annual Emo Holly Daze are cancelled for 2020. As we all know precautions are being taken in every social gathering, and Holly Daze is no exception.

Here’s hoping 2021 will be even bigger and better than previous years, though that’s pretty hard to beat. Hats off to all the volunteers who make this event possible every year (except this one.)
