“Started calling all of our vendors and letting them know that we were going to have to cancel so we’re very excited to be back this year and hopefully the world will continue to get safer so we can continue to have festivals like this,” said Julie Mancini the executive director chamber business association.

While the date is not yet clear, for their 50th anniversary the Boomtown Days festival is planning on a big booming surprise.
