Coming hard on the heels of Barberton’s summer event cancellations, the city of Norton has announced its events canceled.

Mayor Mike Zita announced July 15 that Norton’s annual car show and the accompanying concerts, planned for July 23 through 25, are off.

“Due to the uncertainty of the virus and concerns with community spread, we feel this is the best course of action during this period of uncertainty,” Zita said in a written statement. “Although we are disappointed to make this announcement, our top priority is the health, safety and welfare of the public, the performers, vendors and employees.”

Like Barberton, Norton promised “bigger and better” events next year.
