The City working with the Chamber of Commerce and various stakeholders waited as long as possible to make a decision that would allow for adequate planning for a successful, and safe Spectacular. Various alternatives are still being discussed such as postponement until late summer or waiting until 2021.

The City understands some of our resident's disappointment and looks forward to celebrating this event with our residents with the grandeur and experience it deserves.
