NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WPRI) — The Whaling City Festival is back on.
According to a post on the festival’s Facebook page, the New Bedford Park Board voted unanimously Wednesday night to give the festival the final approval for this year’s event.
Back in May, the festival was canceled due to staffing shortages within the New Bedford Police Department, which usually sponsors the event.
The festival will take place July 11-14 at Buttonwood Park.
