Avon Town Council Cancels July 3rd
Salute to the USA Event


At an April 28th virtual meeting, the Avon Town Council made the difficult decision to cancel the July 3rd Salute to the USA fireworks display and concert. In light of the public health orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town staff researched alternatives to the traditional gathering, which has drawn crowds in excess of 20,000 to Nottingham Park in past years.

The logistical challenges of maintaining social distancing in even a scaled-back event proved insurmountable. "As much as our community deserves the morale booster that our famous fireworks display would provide, taking the necessary public health precautions to put this crisis behind us for good ruled the day. When it’s safe to do so, Salute to the USA will come back to Avon bigger and better than ever," said Mayor Sarah Smith-Hymes.
