Overland Park’s Star Spangled Spectacular will not be held on July 4 as originally planned.
The annual event at Corporate Woods Founders’ Park, which typically draws crowds from across the metro and includes a festival and fireworks show, is canceled.
This year’s event was scheduled to be a fireworks-only celebration beginning at 9:45 p.m.
Guests were encouraged to remain distant at the park while viewing the show. However, a recent increase in coronavirus cases in Johnson County and the State of Kansas created an additional public health risk, prompting the cancelation of the show.
Next year’s Star Spangled Spectacular will take place on Sunday, July 4, 2021.
