Welland festival on hold

Officials with Welland Downtown Board Management are putting a pause on a food festival in the Rose City.

After just two years, the organization decided to put the brakes on this year's Feast Street, citing the growing number of competing food festivals in the region among other reasons.

Chair of the Welland Downtown BIA Kelly Jones says they plan to rejuvenate the festival and find ways to incorporate more of their members in the future.
