Parade canceled; fireworks unsure
Multiple Fourth of July events are being canceled due to coronavirus fears.
The annual South Belt Fourth of July parade has been canceled out of social-distancing concerns.
This marked the second time in the parade’s 33-year history that the event has been canceled.
The 2018 parade was rained out. At press time, it was unclear if the annual South Belt Fourth of July fireworks show at El Franco Lee Park is still going forward.
The yearly event is funded by the annual South Belt Spectacular Cook-off, which was already canceled this past April due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
