GENEVA – The Geneva Chamber of Commerce has canceled its 2020 Holiday House Tour, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, officials announced in a news release.

The tour had been scheduled for Dec. 4 and 5.

“While this decision was difficult, Phase 4 guidelines do not permit an event the size of the Holiday House Tour,” Geneva Chamber President Paula Schmidt stated in the news release.

“We felt this decision is for the safety of our Holiday House Tour visitors, home owners, decorators and volunteers. We know holidays in Geneva are very popular and looked forward to, not only by the locals, but visitors to Geneva as well,” Schmidt stated in the release.

“This event has become a tradition for families and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2021,” Schmidt stated in the release. “Continue to follow our Facebook and Instagram and check our website for updates.”

While the Geneva Christmas Walk, scheduled for Dec. 4, will look different this year, the Geneva Chamber is working on ways to keep the holiday tradition in Geneva joyful – with Santa, lights and sparkle, the release stated.

Geneva will still be a memorable place for Christmas 2020.

“We thank the community for their support and know that the Geneva Chamber is working on creative ways to have smaller, permitable events,” spokeswoman Laura Rush stated in the release.
