      On Tuesday, May 5th, The Redding City Council approved the recommendation of City staff to cancel the annual Freedom Festival on the 4th of July, with the caveat that should large public gatherings be allowed and there is adequate time for planning of the Festival, there is a possibility that the event could be reinstated. The fireworks display will go live as usual with the public event to be determined later. 

      The annual Freedom Festival event, held outside on the Redding Civic Auditorium lawn, typically draws more than 5,000 people each year. Community Services Director Kim Niemer says that with a gathering that large, it would be difficult for attendees to adequately observe social distancing guidelines and next to impossible to enforce them. 

      The fireworks show, which is under a multi-year contract, will continue with the support of all event partners, including The McConnell Foundation, the Redding Civic Auditorium, the Redding Fire, Redding Police and Public Works Departments and the technicians involved in creating the firework display. 

      Any change in the decision to reinstate the Freedom Festival Event would only move forward with the input and support of the Shasta County Public Health Officer to ensure that the best health and safety practices are upheld for the community. 

      As many already enjoy the fireworks display from various locations around the area, those that typically attend the Freedom Festival are encouraged to consider viewing the fireworks display from an alternate location this year.
