[ARCHIVED] City of Victoria postpones Fourth of July event

Fireworks

The City of Victoria Parks & Recreation has decided to postpone the Fourth of July fireworks show originally scheduled to take place at the Victoria Community Center.

The decision is a response to the high rate of community transmission of COVID-19 and new infections within Victoria County. Yesterday, the county saw its largest single-day spike of 146 new confirmed cases.

“We understand that the Fourth of July fireworks show is an important tradition for many people in Victoria, but we had to make this decision in the interest of protecting public health,” said City Manager Jesús A. Garza. “We appreciate the community’s patience, and we look forward to celebrating with you again after the pandemic subsides.”

The fireworks show may be rescheduled for a later date if conditions are deemed safe. The City’s agreement with its vendor allows the event to be rescheduled within the next 180 days.

As the holiday weekend approaches, the City strongly advises residents to abide by public health recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to curb the spread of COVID-19. These include avoiding large groups, maintaining six feet of distance from others and wearing facial coverings in public.
