The COVID-19 pandemic has really put a cramp on the usual things and activities we do with mom on Mother's Day. For starters it's strange that it's Mother's Day weekend and there's no Arts For All festival. Passing by Shepler park and not seeing everything set up is heartbreaking. It was a great place to take mom for lunch, dinner, entertainment and of course they always had special, unique, one of a kind gifts for mom. Guess we'll have to go without this year. The good news though is festival organizers have already said they'll be back in 2021.
