July 4th Street Faire canceled amid COVID-19 concerns, but fireworks show expected to go on
The 2020 July 4th Street Faire won’t be held in Mission Viejo this summer because of ongoing concerns about the coronavirus and uncertainty over when the state may lift its ban on large events. However, the annual fireworks show is expected to go on.
The Mission Viejo Activities Committee, which hosts the popular event each year, always places the safety of the community as the top priority, and based on the current landscape, holding a street faire which attracts thousands of people would be extremely difficult with physical distancing restrictions.
The committee is still working toward hosting the fireworks show and will provide an update once it is confirmed. Stay tuned to mvactivities.com for more information.
Just wondering about the fireworks show. Won’t people be sitting shoulder to shoulder to watch it? We’ve been for many years in a row and it’s always packed! Can’t imagine how social distancing would work.
The fireworks show is planned and hosted by the Mission Viejo Activities Committee. The Committee is working on ideas to try and have the fireworks show while also protecting the community. Please reach out to the Activities Committee at 949-830-7066 or MVAC@cityofmissionviejo.org with additional questions.
