    Lewiston, NY (WBEN) The Kiwanis Club of Lewiston has canceled the 2020 Niagara County Peach Festival because of the COVID19 pandemic. 

    The Kiwanis Club of Lewiston is saddened to announce we will not be able to hold the Peach Festival this year,” said Peach Festival Chairman Dean Beltrano. “After discussions with our vendors, the cancellation by our ride vendor, Amusement Rides of America and for the safety of our members, volunteers and the community at large, the Board of Directors decided it would be in the best interest to cancel the Festival this year and come back stronger in 2021.  We thank the community for their continued support and look forward to seeing you all at Lewiston's Academy Park September 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th in 2021,” added Beltrano.
