In the past week, we have been collecting feedback from vendors and visitors that participated in the Hallow's Eve in the Village event. We thank you for the overwhelming interest, and both constructive and positive feedback to improve Harry Potter themed events. In order to implement the event improvements suggested, the East Village Neighbourhood Association has decided it is in the best interest of the visitors, vendors, and suppliers to postpone this event until further notice. Therefore, Christmas in the Village event for this year - December 3 - 4th, 2016 will be CANCELLED. Organizers will be taking the year to raise event production funds, to curate and prepare vendors to fit the event theme, book entertainment and family activities required to put on an improved production to meet the expectations of our vendor and visitor customers. We hope you continue to support the event, in order to make it happen!
