A major part of an annual ritual on the Suncoast has been cancelled due to red tide.

The Fish-A-Thon, part of the annual Englewood Pioneer Days, has been called off. The event was initially scheduled for August 26th.

It was to be the 9th year for the Michael O’Donnell Memorial Fish-A-Thon at the Tom Adams Bridge. As of now, all other Pioneer Days events are running as scheduled.
