The Fullerton Fireworks Foundation announced that this year’s 4th of July Firework Display at Fullerton Elementary has been cancelled. They released an official statement on their Facebook page.
“In light of the situation we are facing locally and nationally with Covid-19, the board has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s fireworks celebration. We are doing this as a safety measure to protect lives,” said the statement.
“Even though smaller gatherings of 50 people or less may be allowed in the near future, we see no way to guarantee the safety of over 12,000 citizens sitting shoulder-to-shoulder to watch the event. We will hopefully see all of you in 2021. Stay Safe, and thank you for supporting the Fullerton Fireworks Foundation for nearly 60 years!”
The Kingsville, Maryland Independence Day Parade also announced that they were cancelling their 4th of July event too because of the coronavirus.
“In these uncertain times we are all being faced with difficult decisions, so it was with the final decision to not hold our traditional Kingsville 4th of July Parade,” said a statement from the Kingsville committee on April 4.
“The enjoyment of the parade that each of us have experienced in the past is the result of weeks and months of planning with commitments necessary to develop before the actual event. This conclusion was made with “an abundance of caution” regarding future restrictions.”
