The city of Tomball announced Aug. 14 all city events for the remainder of 2020 have been canceled because of the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of when Harris County officials may lift guidelines limiting large gatherings, according to a city news release.

This includes GroovFest 2020, Paces4Pink, Zomball in Tomball, the Freight Train Food Truck Festival, the Tomball Bluegrass Festival and Depot Day this fall, as well as the city's Christmas tree lighting and Deck the Depot events, according to the release.

However, the city is considering virtually presenting some previously scheduled events, such as the Tomball Bluegrass Festival and the Christmas tree lighting, via livestreaming or airing the events on the city's radio station, KTTF 95.3 FM, according to the release. Plans for the virtual events are forthcoming.
