(WKBN) – The summer season is coming to the Valley, which would normally mean fun and festivities out in the community. But some restrictions are still in place with COVID-19.

While some events have canceled for the safety of volunteers and event-goers, others have adapted to the restrictions set in place. Either way, summer in the Valley won’t look the same as in previous years.
