Akron 4th of July parade postponed, fireworks canceled

Cancelled stamp

Out of the utmost care, compassion and concern for the residents of Akron and neighboring residents due to the current conditions and risks from the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Akron Chamber of Commerce, Akron 4th of July Committee and with the support of the Akron Town Council, jointly announce that the Akron 4th of July Parade, Akron Fireworks, and
associated events scheduled for July 4, 2020 have been postponed.

Akron was founded on July 4, 1836, by 47 settlers seeking new lands in what was then an
uncharted wilderness. To celebrate their courage and resilience, Akron has hosted one of the largest 4th of July parades in the state of Indiana since 1961. This year’s parade will move to the Akron Summer’s End Festival slated for Saturday, September 26, 2020. The fireworks will not take place in 2020 but will be held with a possible bigger display at the 2021 Akron 4th of July festivities.

Follow the Akron Summer’s End Festival Facebook page for announcements and scheduled
events from the Akron 4th of July/Summer’s End Festival Joint Committee. For additional
questions, please contact Lori Tilden-Geiger at 574-527-3000.
