Independence Day at Home

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 07/04/2020
One of our largest community celebrations is our 4th of July Fireworks display and festival. We were really hoping to be able to continue that tradition this year on July 4th, but after many thoughtful and some very difficult discussions, we have concluded that is it just not safe or possible. As always, the health and safety of our community remain our top priority and for that reason, we cannot safely gather as we typically do to celebrate Independence Day. We look forward to sharing this annual tradition with our community next year. This Year The Center will be bringing you a Virtual Festival with Events Every Hour Kicking off at 3:00 PM
