Fireworks display

There will be no fireworks display July 4 at Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center.

The Annual Redmond 4th of July Fireworks shows hosted by the Redmond Chamber and held at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds will not occur this year, according to a press release

The decision was made in collaboration with the Chamber, the Deschutes County Fairgrounds & Expo Center Director, the Redmond Police Chief, Fire Chief and in consultation with Deschutes County Health Services. This team spent many weeks examining whether the event could be held in a manner that made it COVID-safe.

The conclusion was, it could not. News released Friday by the Oregon Health Authority related to a sharp uptick in cases and inconsistency with people observing physical distancing requirements reaffirmed their conclusions.
