The Sonora Days Festival, which over the years has featured a road race, parades, street vendors and entertainment, has been canceled for this year.
Event organizers say the cost of staging the three-day event and the need for more volunteers prompted them to call off this year’s event.
Martha Cruse, former president of the Sonora Merchants Association, said it was a difficult decision to make.
“Money is an issue,’’ she said. “And it takes a lot of manpower to have it.’’
