SAN ANTONIO, TX (June 16, 2020) – San Antonio Parks and Recreation and the San Antonio Parks Foundation announce that the Official City of San Antonio Fourth of July Celebration and fireworks show at Woodlawn Lake Park is cancelled this year, out of an abundance of caution to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
“We have to remain vigilant to contain this virus. The actions we take now will ensure that we are all around for holidays and celebrations next year,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “We can still celebrate responsibly this year by practicing physical distancing or wearing a face covering or mask when keeping a distance isn’t possible.”
"While we’re disappointed that we won’t be hosting a celebration this year, we know this is the best decision for the health and well-being of our community during this COVID-19 environment,” noted Mary Jane Verette, President and CEO of the San Antonio Parks Foundation.
City parks and trails will remain open over the holiday weekend. The City reminds the public to practice social distancing when visiting City parks and trails.
