AKRON – Events scheduled for the Fourth of July in Akron have been postponed 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,has been postponed.
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.
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.
