Despite erroneous reports of cancellation, the 44th Annual Suffolk Peanut Fest will move forward as planned, Oct. 6-9, at the Suffolk Executive Airport.

The effects of Hurricane Ian forced the cancellation of the annual festival parade Saturday, Oct. 1, which occurs one week prior to the actual festival.
