Independence is cancelling their Fourth of July events.
The Chamber announced Friday morning that the Celebrate Indee festival and 4th of July Parade will not be held this year.
This would have been the 19th year for the festival and the 160th Annual 4th of July Parade.
The Celebrate Indee Committee and Independence Chamber says they cannot in good faith gather thousands of their friends, family members and neighbors over July 3rd and 4th and risk what we have all been working so hard for over the past two months. They say your safety is important to them and unfortunately, this virus will not quickly disappear within the coming weeks or months.
To help offset the costs of prepaid expenses, Celebrate Indee will soon host a t-shirt sale and they are currently accepting donations at celebrateindee.com.
The Celebrate Indee Committee and Independence Chamber say “although we will not celebrate the nation’s independence together this year, we cannot wait to come back stronger than ever in 2021”.
