In a Facebook Post by the Moses Lake Spring Festival
“The Moses Lake Spring Festival committee took on Moses Lake Freedom Festival this year not knowing our country would be facing such a difficult time. We had to cancel Spring Fest, along with witnessing events all over our region being postponed until next year...”
Continuing in their post,
“our team has been working hard behind the scenes alongside the City of Moses Lake and the Grant County Health District to work towards options to maintain safety, but also provide our community with a fireworks celebration.”
The firework show will be displayed by Western Display Fireworks headquartered out of Canby, Oregon. The event will follow CDC guidelines. According to the Spring Fest organizers, that means there will be no vendors at the park, no carnival, and no live entertainment. The local Farmers Market will be in there weekly location at McCosh until 1pm. The organizers said
“This may not be the ideal situation but it is huge that we will be one of the few fireworks shows still happening in Eastern Washington.”
The fIrework show will take place on July 4, 2020 at 10pm. The fireworks will take place in the annual location in downtown across from McCosh Park. The organizers are asking those to follow social distancing guidelines by not gathering inside McCosh Park during the show as the organizers are strictly following the current COVID-19 guidelines for Grant County.
The organizers addressed that there will be individuals who disagree with this years guidelines by asking them to honor them this year and to be grateful that Moses Lake can still have a show.
“We are aware there are some that will disagree with this, but we ask you to honor this decision and to be grateful that we can have a show here. Come up with creative ways to watch the show from your home, car, boat, or other spots around town. We look forward to this show as we celebrate our Independence!!”
