Eariler this week, the Walkersville Volunteer Fire Company made a very difficult choice to announce the cancellation of its annual Carnival for the first time in its history. The carnival was scheduled to be held the week of July 4, 2020.
“While we hate to forego our most beloved week of the year, we must always keep the health and safety of our patrons and our volunteer workers at the top of our priority list,” a letter sent to the community stated. Due to mask requirements, social distancing standards, and assembly restrictions, the company could not hold the carnival.
Thanks to the Town of Walkersville, the Fire Company will hold its Fireworks show to celebrate Independence Day on Friday, July 3, 2020. The Fire Company will share specifics about the show in the coming weeks.
