The host Aldergrove Business Association wonâ€™t be able to put on a popular Halloween event this year.
The Wall Oâ€™Lanterns Festival has been cancelled for 2014, but will hopefully be back in 2015, said Aldergrove Business Association president Ken Kendall.
Without necessary sponsorship, the $10,000 budget canâ€™t be secured, so the merchantsâ€™ group was â€œunfortunately unable to move forward,â€ he said.
â€œI would like to deeply thank those Aldergrove businesses and individuals who stepped up and got us to about half our goal,â€ Kendall said.
â€œYou are all to be appreciated for your generosity of your time, money, and support, and for your commitment to the community.â€
The hope, he said, is to have the Wall event back in 2015, and â€œto make it an even better and bigger community event going forward.â€
