Chapin reluctantly cancels their Labor Day Festival & parade

Chapin, SC (Kendall Nuttall) - The Chapin Labor Day Festival happens just once every year. With 20,000 visitors and hundreds of vendors filling up the small town, it’s an event people look forward to all year long! This year would've been their 41st year of holding the festival, but due to COVID-19, the festival has been canceled.

Chapin officials were understandably upset after having to make this call recently. On the town’s Facebook page maintained for the Labor Day Festival, officials said, "We understand that this is disappointing but hope that the community will understand that we have not come to this decision lightly. The safety of our people is and will always be the first priority. We feel strongly that this is the most prudent course of action."

The Chapin community is still however, having their Justin Pepper 5K which has had accommodations made to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. As of Wednesday, August 12, 2020, you can still register for the 5K. You can do that simply by following this link: https://runsignup.com/Race/SC/Chapin/VirtualJustinPepper5K.

According to their webpage at JustinPepper.com, the Justin Pepper Foundation encourages youth to take ownership in their communities through volunteer activities and philanthropy. They recognize and reward youth who excel in volunteerism and philanthropy through their scholarship program.
