Boca Raton officials have canceled a planned July 4th “Fabulous Fourth Celebration” that would have been held at Countess deHoernle Park.
The announcement on the city’s website said the cancellation was a “difficult decision” and thanked residents for their “patience and understanding.”
The city indicated a virtual event would be held instead but did not announce specifics.
The city has sponsored numerous virtual events since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Most recently, the Recreation Services Department hosted a Memorial Day ceremony that residents could watch on the city’s YouTube channel and the recreation department’s Facebook page. The May 31 event also was recorded and could be viewed on YouTube, Facebook, and Comcast Xfinity Channel 20, Hotwire Channel 395 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99.
