ORANGE, Texas — Traditional events and celebrations all over the world have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A few annual celebrations in Southeast Texas have now joined the list.
The City of Orange has postponed the DSRA Drag Boat Races, the city’s 4th of July concerts and fireworks celebration.
The city made the announcement Thursday on their Facebook page.
Both events are delayed, not cancelled. The city has rescheduled the events to take place during September 5-6, which is Labor Day weekend.
The city encourages members of the community to find safe ways to celebrate the national holiday amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, the Nederland City Council voted to cancel this year's Fireworks show citing social distancing concerns, the city's lack of food vendors, entertainment amenities, and sponsors.
