The Town of South Kingstown and the South Kingstown Parks and Recreation Department regrettably announce the cancellation of the Annual Fourth of July Celebration at Old Mountain Field.
We know that this event is the highlight of the summer for so many of our residents, residents from neighboring communities, and vacationers from around the state and the country. Unfortunately, because of the continuing public health threat presented by COVID-19, the community is not able to gather together to celebrate as we usually do at Old Mountain Field – and all the other favorite viewing spots across town, to enjoy each other’s company, live music, great food, and spectacular fireworks that have always made this event so special.
Independence Day will never go unrecognized in South Kingstown however – and while this year there will be no grand celebration as is our longstanding tradition, the Town will hold a flag raising ceremony at Old Mountain Field on the morning of July 4th. More details on this ceremony will be announced in the coming weeks, including how community members can attend remotely.
The originally planned celebration, with a live concert by Take it to the Bridge and the always spectacular fireworks display, has been tentatively rescheduled to October 10th, 2020 provided that large group gatherings, like we know this will be, are allowed at that time.
We hope everyone enjoys a wonderful 4th of July weekend, and finds new ways to safely celebrate Independence Day with family, friends, and neighbors this year.
