Rehoboth Beach cancels Independence Day Fireworks due to COVID-19

Apr 24, 2020

Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Rehoboth Beach has canceled its Independence Day fireworks on July 3rd and the Bandstand Summer Concert Series through the July 4th weekend. All permitted special events scheduled through the holiday weekend are also canceled, and the City is working closely with the event producers to cancel their events.

The beach and Boardwalk remain closed until May 15, or until the public health threat of COVID-19 has been eliminated, per Governor Carney's State of Emergency order. 

“The health and safety of the community is our top priority and at the forefront of all decisions made during this unprecedented and rapidly evolving situation,” said Mayor Paul Kuhns. “It is difficult to accept that these cherished events cannot continue as planned this year. We look forward to the day when we can all come together once again and celebrate the events that make Rehoboth Beach such a wonderful and connected community.”
