Spirit of Kansas fireworks cancelled
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - After postponing the Spirit of Kansas fireworks show, organizers now say the show has been cancelled.
Earlier on Monday, Shawnee County Parks and Rec said they were close to a decision. As of Monday afternoon, they have cancelled the show all together.
“We did our best, working with the county commissioners and county health officials to schedule the event safely, first on July 4 and then again in the fall,” said Tim Laurent, SCP+R director. “However, an increase in COVID-19 cases each time made canceling the event in the interest of public health the prudent decision.”
The Shawnee County Board of Commissioners delayed the fireworks celebration from July 4th, to a possible date in September. It was even floated that it would be held on September 11th.
