Fourth of July celebrations at Fort Gordon have been canceled this year.

A fireworks show and celebration were initially planned for July 2.

Officials said health and safety concerns were the cause for the cancellation, WJBF reported. It was determined that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 guidelines could not be successfully implemented.

“This was a difficult decision as we know many look forward to sharing this event with family and friends,” officials said in a statement. “We appreciate your support and await coming together and enjoying the scheduled entertainment at the Fall Festival on Friday, October 2nd.”
