A budget crunch has claimed two popular seasonal celebrations in the western suburbs.

The city of Aurora has announced it will not hold its 2010 Holiday Magic Celebration or the Philips Park Fall Festival because of budget constraints. Aurora officials estimate they'll save $30,000 by eliminating the events.

Aurora will still host a tree-lighting ceremony on November 23rd to mark the start of the holidays.
