Spirit of Kansas delayed until September
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Shawnee County Board of Commissioners have delayed the Spirit of Kansas celebration until September.
Commissioners voted to move it to September, possibly September 11th, and decided to look at changing locations from the lake to the capitol.
Commissioner Mays and Cook said Shawnee County is not exempt from the mass gathering rules in the state due to COVID-19.
The recommendation to delay the fireworks came from the Shawnee County Health Officer.
They clarified the only event delayed is the fireworks show, and not the car show that day.
Organizers say the car show will be from 8:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. Saturday.
