The future of the Keene Pumpkin Festival, which was riddled by riots last year, is in jeopardy, and a vote on whether to keep the festival has been delayed.
A City Council committee vote last week unanimously rejected a permit request for this year's festival in New Hampshire.
The full City Council vote Thursday night was sent back to the planning sub-committee to rework prices for security.
More than 100 people were arrested after parties got out of hand Oct. 18, 2014, near the festival. Police used tear gas and pepper balls to control crowds.
At least 30 people were injured.
The event each year tries to set a record for the number of lit jack-o-lanterns.
The council will take another vote on March 25.
