For the second straight year, the Yarmouth Clam Festival has been canceled due to the pandemic.

Yarmouth town officials made the initial decision to cancel the festival on Feb. 8.

The town has plans for other community events during the summer.

Yarmouth officials said they hope the festival can return when the time is right.
