UNION COUNTY, NJ — COVID-19 has shut down another event. The annual Four Centuries in a Weekend celebration in October, has been canceled, the County of Union announced Wednesday.

“The safety of staff, volunteers, and our residents is of the utmost importance and our highest priority,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella. “The Freeholder Board and the Department of Parks and Recreation will be working to make next year’s event even better, and we thank residents for their understanding as we continue to navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”

The many sites on the tour vary in size and capacity, making it difficult to accommodate the restrictions in place due to the ongoing pandemic.

Residents may visit https://ucnj.org/parks-recreation/cultural-heritage-affairs/ for information about each site, and may consider taking virtual tours.
