History/Culture Question: Kamo no Matsuri/Aoi Matsuri 1870 - 1884

Searched: variations of Kamo no Matsuri 1870's/1880's, Aoi no Matsuri 1870's/1880's, and Aoi Festival Meiji Period.
Found: No day-to-day details nor any mention of interim activities.

Question: When the Aoi Festival was discontinued during the Meiji Period, exactly how discontinued was it? Wiki (ugh) only indicates that the procession was discontinued. Does that mean that other aspects of the festival, like the horse races and archery exhibitions earlier in the month were also discontinued, or did those still happen? Would there still have been a large influx of people into the city during May?
