With large gatherings deemed still not acceptable according to CDC guidelines with regard to social distancing practices, the City of St. Cloud has cancelled this year’s annual Fourth of July Celebration at the Lakefront.

The City of St. Cloud’s Fourth of July Lakefront Celebration is one of the region’s largest outdoor events and fireworks displays, with a typical attendance of over 7500, and includes an afternoon of musical entertainment, food and beverage vendors, exhibitors, and family fun for the entire family. The City of St. Cloud, joins other cities like Kissimmee and Orlando who have already canceled their fireworks due to CDC and local guidelines  in the interest of public safety.

“It definitely won’t be the same not having fireworks and many families near and far gathered at the lakefront to enjoy this event, but we have to be sure to keep the public’s safety in our best interest. We look forward to the future when we can return to creating lasting memories together,” said City Manager Bill Sturgeon.
