Special to the
Opelika Observer

The sixth annual “Burger Wars” event in downtown Opelika has been postponed until further notice. Organizers who represent the Happy Hour and Opelika Rotary clubs posted the news earlier this month on the event’s Facebook page said they prioritize the “safety and well-being of the community” and that factored into their decision to postpone.
They will be actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and looking to set a new date for this family-fun event as soon as possible.
At the conclusion of the post, organizers took a moment to express their thanks to the community for its support of the event, which serves as a fundraiser for the Food Bank of East Alabama.
“We really appreciate all of our Burger Wars sponsors, grillers, and of course, our loyal “burger-loving” taste-testers and we look forward to all of us being together again for a fun day in beautiful downtown Opelika.”
