We are very sorry to announce that Friends of Holstein Park must cancel this Sunday’s Bucktown Apple Pie Festival. The predicted winds are so high that our tent-rental company decided it would be unsafe to install the tents we reserved. Despite a lot of scrambling to find an indoor venue, we were simply unable to find local indoor space on such short notice.
We are extremely disappointed, and we know you are too. We’ve put in a lot of planning over the last several months, but there’s simply nothing we can do about the weather on Sunday. For the safety of everyone concerned, the best option is to cancel the event.
Thank you for your continued support of Holstein Park. Please accept our apologies for the late notice. We have wonderful neighbors and sponsors, and we are looking forward to next year’s Apple Pie Contest in our newly renovated fieldhouse.
