The 35th annual Fall Harbor hop is the latest event to be canceled due to COVID 19 concerns.
Officials with the CVB say the decision to cancel the October event was made in an effort to keep the community, visitors and everyone safe and healthy.
A major part of the decision was the large number of people involved in the event, which included over 100 people across the 50 lake area bars.
The Spring Harbor Hop is still on for May 2021.
LAKE OF THE OZARKS, Mo. — Due to the effects of COVID 19, the Lake of the Ozarks Convention & Visitor Bureau board of directors has decided to cancel the 35th Annual Fall Harbor Hop. The event was set for Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020 and is hosted by the Lake of the Ozarks Convention & Visitor Bureau.
“This decision was regretfully made in the best interest of keeping our community, visitors and staff safe and healthy,” the CVB said in an announcement. “This decision had to be made at this time due to the execution of the event which has approximately 50 waterfront business participants, 100 part-time dealers and 15 full time staff members involved.”
