Some vendors have started backing out of this years 100th West Side Nut Club Fall Festival.
At last count, six organizations are no longer participating.
One of those groups is Saint Wendel Catholic Church. Officials tell 44News the decision comes because of rising Covid numbers.
"It was getting kind of scary because the number of cases and our people would then be working closely together in preparation of the food, then also in the booth selling the items and then interacting with lots of people," said Father Ed Schnur.
As case numbers in the area continue to grow, the Fall Festival is working on being safe for those who attend.
"We are putting things in place. We've had 500 gallons of hand sanitizer donated and we're going to have handwashing stations and hand sanitizing stations up and down Franklin street," said Ryan Beck, Publicity Chairman for the West Side Nut Club.
Any groups that opt out this year's Fall Festival will have their spot reserved for next year's event.
