In a statement, the company said "It is our absolute priority to protect the health and safety of everyone involved with this event. We appreciate that this will be disappointing for a great many people, but we must act responsibly during this pandemic. 

"With all the current information, and ongoing restrictions coming from the State level, we strongly felt that this was the right thing to do.  All our events will be rescheduled to next year at the same times if this current health crisis is no longer an issue."
