MILWAUKEE -- Bastille Days and Jazz in the Park will not happen on their original dates, the East Town Association announced Thursday.

The organization has decided not to host any events in June or July. It hopes to eventually reschedule all of its planned activities, including the French-themed Bastille Days and popular concert series Jazz in the Park. The Saturday morning Cathedral Square Market will also be postponed.

"The health and welfare of the community is our number one priority and we will do our part to keep the best interests of our attendees and vendors in mind," the organization said in a news release.

One silver lining? You can soon sign up for the Virtual Madison Medical Affiliates Storm the Bastille run on July 9-12. The $25 registration fee includes a run bib and a long sleeve t-shirt. Participants will be encouraged to track and record their times digitally.
