Duncanville Cancels July 4th Event and Fireworks Display

Duncanville, Texas – At their May 19th, 2020 regular meeting the Duncanville City Council made the decision to cancel this year’s July 4th event and fireworks display in the interests of public health and safety.

With nearby cities canceling their own Independence Day events, a Duncanville event was a potential attraction to people from outside the City at a time when all efforts are being taken to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

After a discussion about possible solutions that would allow the event to continue, Mayor Barry L. Gordon and the City Council agreed that, while disappointing, it was in the best interests of public health and safety to cancel the event.

“It was a painful decision for us as a council,” said Mayor Gordon of the cancellation. “We understand how enjoyable this community event is. It’s a hallmark event for the city. Regrettably, extraordinary times require extraordinary measures. We regret we can’t have fireworks this year.”

At the time of the meeting, Dallas County had identified the COVID-19 pandemic risk level as high, “Stay Home, Stay Safe.” At the state and federal levels, the government is still recommending the use of cloth face coverings, 6-foot social distancing, and limiting group sizes.

The Mayor closed the discussion saying, “We’ll do something bigger and better next year, hopefully.”

As Texas continues to Re-open remember that the grocery stores and others have been fully open for food and supplies every day. Our restaurants are re-opening more but they have been closed for dine-in during this time. We need to either go to dine in their businesses or continue to use their take out and Curb-side pick-up.

If you feel comfortable about getting out and want to do so then visit our Chamber Restaurants as they are opening their dining rooms. If you don’t want to get out yet and feel safer at home then please continue to support our Businesses that are still offering Curbside pickup and/or Takeout. They need our support and we need their business to rebound as well. We continue to update the website as needed as well as posts on the Chamber Facebook page.
