TETON VALLEY, Ida. — City of Victor officials today announced that all 4th of July events have been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
After considering the event size, the density of the crowd, and there being no effective way to reduce attendance such that physical distancing could be achieved, the Victor City Council made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
Victor’s annual 4th of July celebration typically includes a fun run, flag ceremony, community breakfast and lunch, craft fair, and parade hosted by the city in conjunction with local nonprofits. The festivities are usually attended by thousands of spectators each year.
“The draw of Victor’s 4th of July celebration is one of the largest in the valley each year,” Mayor Will Frohlich said. “Sadly, that makes the risk for community transmission too high. Already, we look forward to next year’s 4th of July. If we remain strong and united, act responsibly, we will continue to beat this virus and get back to a sense of normalcy.”
