On Wednesday, the Lewiston Council on the Arts announced, “We regretfully announce that the 2021 Marble Orchard Ghost Walks have been canceled. This difficult decision was made for several reasons. First and foremost, the lead character has become incapacitated following a serious car accident and her absence will negatively impact the quality of the audience experience. In addition, despite a mask requirement and rising COVID numbers in Niagara County, compliance has been low. While we were looking forward to seeing everyone at the event, the safety of the audience and our presenters is of great concern.
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we look forward to seeing everyone at future events.
“Thank you for your understanding.”
