The 75-year anniversary celebration for Guadalupe has been cancelled.

Concerns over the rise in COVID-19 cases on the Central Coast have led to a city’s big anniversary celebration being called off.

Over 2000 people were expected at celebrations for the 75th anniversary of the City of Guadalupe, which was scheduled for Sunday.

But the decision was made to pull the plug, says Todd Bodem, City Administrator of Guadalupe, because of concerns over the rise in COVID numbers because of variant strains.

"It's sad," Bodem told KCLU. "We don't want to be responsible for any sort of super spreader situation."

He said he hopes the plans can be postponed to a later date.
