LEMONT  – Because of the number of inquiries to the village, Lemont Village Administrator George Schafer announced during the Monday Lemont Village Board meeting that there will be no Keepataw Days festival or parade this year.

The private organization that had run the event the past couple of years disbanded, and, after discussion, local government agencies decided against running the event themselves.

Schafer said the village and others will explore whether they could hold the parade in future years.
