Woodstock July 4 Fireworks Celebration

Independence Day celebrations in the City of Woodstock this year will be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and Governor Kemp’s large gatherings ban. The Independence Day schedule is being altered in order to comply with CDC Guidelines and state restrictions.

 

The Freedom Run has been postponed until Fall 2020. A new date for the run will be announced in the near future. While the July 4th Spectacular Parade and Festival will not be held this year, the fireworks display in the area of Woodstock Square will continue as planned.

 

“We consulted with elected officials, state officials and staff and determined that there is no good way to stage Woodstock’s annual parade and festival this year with current restrictions in effect. We are proceeding with the fireworks show as regularly scheduled, given that the layout of the area that is utilized for viewing the show easily allows for social distancing,” said City Manager Jeff Moon. “We strongly encourage those who gather in the area of Woodstock Square for the show to be responsible and follow CDC guidelines.”

 

Fireworks will take place at dusk. Traffic plans will be shared on the City’s social media in coming weeks.

Independence Day Celebration Cancelled

Jasper Lions Club - As many of you may be aware the Lions Club along with the County and City Partners have concluded that out of an abundance of caution it was deemed prudent and advisable to forgo 4th of July activities for this year due to the Public Health State of Emergency as declared by the State of Georgia.

The coordinated efforts of all parties involved takes months of pre-planning and approvals which were unfortunately not able to be accommodated this year due to COVID-19. The Lions Club depends upon donations and receipts from the activities of the fair, etc., and that assists in funding other elements of the activities such as the fireworks.

In light of many unknowns that still continue, there are no planned large-group activities for the 4th of July. As disappointed as we all are, we will continue to acknowledge that the recognition and celebration of Independence Day is a concept that cannot be "cancelled", but for this year we will all have to modify our approach of celebrating this day and look forward to the next time we have together!
