The Town of Wilkesboro’s annual “Christmas in the Commons,” planned for Dec. 5, in the downtown, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A town spokesman said it was a difficult decision and added, “This year has brought many changes to the town’s event schedule and we appreciate your understanding and commitment to the community’s health and safety.”

The spokesman said downtown Christmas decorations will go up soon and a tree lighting date will be announced later.
