City Fireworks Display Canceled
City canceling fireworks display while offering July 4th physically distant neighborhood pop-up parades
Post Date: 06/26/2020
After much thought and careful deliberation, we regret to announce the cancellation of this year’s 4th of July fireworks. We know this is very disappointing, but due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, we do not believe there is a way to keep our community and staff safe during such a large event. We thank you for understanding.
The City of Cedar Park is planning to bring the 4th of July fun to you! In consideration of physical distancing recommendations and in lieu of our annual large parade, we are doing a series of neighborhood “pop-up parades” across the city this year. These pop-up parades will consist of a few public safety and Public Works vehicles caravanning through Cedar Park’s largest subdivisions. The vehicles will be decorated in their “Fourth of July finest.”
We are asking all Cedar Parkians to show your Cedar Park spirit by decorating your homes, your yards, your sidewalks, and yourselves. Everyone is encouraged to find a spot along the route, stay with your family at a safe distance from others and wave a flag or cheer as the parade passes. The neighborhoods and timelines were strategically chosen to keep firefighters within their respective fire districts.
A full list of neighborhoods and the schedule is available on www.cedarparktexas.gov/july4. If someone does not find their neighborhood on the schedule, they are welcome to choose a neighborhood and time slot on the schedule that is convenient. Each pop-up parade is expected to last around ten minutes.
We want to encourage you to show off your decorated homes by taking “porch portraits” of your family and sharing them on social media so we can all celebrate together.
