The 39th annual Royal Fireworks Concert, scheduled for July 26, has been postponed until next summer, the board of trustees of the Spokane Historic Concerts Association announced Monday.
In a news release, the board cited the continuing coronavirus pandemic and increasing number of cases in Spokane as reasons for the postponement.
“There simply is no possible way to produce this event safely this year,” the board wrote.
The Royal Fireworks Concert is a free event held the last Sunday in July in Riverfront Park. The concert, according to the news release, brings 60 musicians from around the Pacific Northwest and as many as 20,000 audience members to the park.
The next Royal Fireworks Concert will be on July 25, 2021. Past Royal Fireworks Concerts can be viewed via YouTube: youtube.com/watch?v=i3ay-thi_ms&feature=youtu.be, youtube.com/watch?v=Mduu0LkeiYc&feature=youtu.be and youtube.com/watch?v=1lxH2MbhEWs&feature=youtu.be.
