HERMOSA BEACH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CANCELS MEMORIAL DAY FIESTA HERMOSA DUE TO COVID-19 CONCERNS
April 23, 2020 (HERMOSA BEACH, Calif.) – After careful consultation with the City of Hermosa Beach about how to protect public health during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce made the difficult decision to cancel the Memorial Day Fiesta Hermosa, originally scheduled for the weekend of May 23-25, 2020.
“Due to continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent declarations from the Governor of California, the Chamber believes it is the best way to proceed,” according to Maureen Hunt, President/ CEO of the Chamber. “We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our community, but ultimately know it is the right decision regarding the health and safety of the public.”
Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for Fiesta Hermosa every Memorial Day Weekend and many participants, including local Hermosa Beach businesses and community organizations who rely upon it for income, the Chamber delayed the decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns would lessen by the summer. The Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce will be reaching out directly to vendors and all participants with further information.
The Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce plans to celebrate with a Fiesta later in the year, currently planned for Labor Day Fiesta Hermosa, to be held September 5-7th 2020.
