2020 Event Cancellation

It is with regret that one of the longstanding highlights of every summer in the region, the 2020 fireworks show, held in conjunction with the Star Spangled Spectacular have been CANCELED.

The SSS Committee and the event’s presenting sponsors had already agreed that all SSS activities would be canceled this year due to COVID-19 concerns.

It was hoped that the fireworks display could go on, but after much discussion, serious concerns with large crowd gatherings, and social distancing, it became clear that for the safety of local residents and those traveling to Lima to see the fireworks, that CANCELING one of the top fireworks displays in the region was the right thing to do.

The SSS committee and presenting sponsors are already looking to 2021 to bring back an even bigger and better Star Spangled Spectacular for the region to enjoy next summer. During this time, we at the SSS hope you and your family stay safe and healthy. ❤️💙

    1. Hi Niki, there will not be a 5k race this year. The logistics of managing that many people while trying to be compliant with the recommendations from the State was not going to be possible.
