Another annual summer event has been canceled for the 2020 year as a result of the Coronavirus--Coronado's Fourth of July celebrations.

Coronado's Fourth of July Committee and city leaders decided this week to cancel the 72nd annual Fourth of July parade and fireworks display--as well as other events ike the 12K and 5K run/walk, fun run, rough-water swim, community vendors, and Art in the Park and concert events.

“This is the City’s biggest holiday celebration of the year,” City Manager Blair King said. “Unfortunately, it was a decision that had to be made.”

 

The news comes less than one week after the cancellations of the San Diego County Fair, San Diego Pride and San Diego Comic-Con.
