The COVID-19 coronavirus has canceled plans for Independence Day celebrations this year, but two organizations will be hosting shows.

If you choose to partake in the celebrations, please keep in mind the governor’s encouragement for social distancing, cloth masks and handwashing as a means to help prevent the spread of the virus.
