Batavia cancels 2020 Christmas in the Village

The Village of Batavia will not present Christmas in the Village this year.

The Christmas event for children and families is a village tradition. Councilwoman Kathy Turner has chaired the annual event, held the first Saturday in December.

Mrs. Turner and the Village Council decided not to have the event this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Possibility of contagion, together with state restrictions and people's concerns about health and about compliance, led to the decision.
