CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Once again, a popular New Year’s Eve event has been canceled.

First Night Virginia, the second oldest First Night celebration in the United States, posted on its website that this year’s event will not be taking place.

At this time, the reasoning for the cancellation is not clear.

The annual event, which started in 1982, has not been held since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
