Concord's 4th Of July Fireworks Have Been Canceled

CONCORD, NH — July 4 events across the country will not look the same this year thanks to the new coronavirus.

Many communities have been forced to cancel or postpone their annual Fourth of July events, including Concord. The decision was made by the recreation department a few weeks ago.

However, the city council has directed the city manager to find a way to open pools this summer even for a short time period. It was discussed at Monday's meeting.

Concord Parks and Recreation Department announced recently that summer day camps begin on June 22. A number of parks are open around the city with a lot of allowed activities including trail walking, tennis, basketball, and more activities.

Due to the pandemic, counties or cities may adjust or cancel events at the last minute. Check your event before you go. Know of other events in the area? Post them on the Patch calendar or share details on our free Neighbor Post feature.
