Easter in Lee Park, an event known for its colorful parade of pooches, is canceled this year.
"Easter in Lee Park did not receive enough funding to continue this year," said David Berryman, executive director of the Cedar Springs Merchants Association, in an email. "The event is canceled. The park will still be open to the public but you will have to obey standard park rules that day."
A GoFundMe campaign raised $870 of its $20,000 fundraising goal to put on the festival (the full amount of the campaign was not met, so the funds were not charged).
