The Baldwin City Recreation Commission, after many conversations with our Board as well as with City officials has made the difficult, however, socially responsible decision to cancel the concert, kids zone and food truck portion of the Independence Day show in 2020. Many factors played a role in this decision, but chief among those being the uncertainty of the current pandemic and public gatherings. In addition, many of the conversations with vendors that make this event a success have been ongoing for several weeks and ultimately, in effort to continue to flatten the curve so we can get back to events we have grown accustom to, all were in agreement that the best course of action was to cancel the show this year. All this said, the fireworks portion of the show will still go on and they will be shot off at the golf course on Friday, July 3rd. As more information becomes available for the fireworks show, we will be sharing. We at BCRC are disappointed that we will not celebrate the holiday weekend as we have in the past, however, we are excited to be part of a fantastic fireworks show and wish everyone a great Independence Day celebrating America's freedom.
