KENOVA — The 2020 Ceredo-Kenova Autumnfest has been called off, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It is with extreme disappointment that we make this announcement,” a post from organizers on social media read. “ The Board has been monitoring the COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines and we feel it is in the best interest and safety of our visitors, vendors and community to make this decision,”

The annual multi-day event, in its 10th year, is usually a large draw for the two West Virginia towns, featuring parades, pageants, car shows and other events, with the centerpiece being the elaborate displays at the Pumpkin House in Kenova.
