REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The annual Redmond Fourth of July fireworks shows hosted by the Redmond Chamber and held at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds will not occur this year, the organizations announced Friday afternoon.

Here's the rest of the statement, posted to the chamber's Facebook page:

"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 today by the Oregon Health Authority related to a sharp uptick in cases and inconsistency with people observing physical distancing requirements reaffirmed their conclusions," the announcement concluded.

    1. Yes, regressives will be outraged at this, after all, dear leader is so brave he is not following his own white house guidelines yet is totally paranoid about getting the flu because it “would make him look bad”!!!! ROTFLMAO!!!! The poor big fat slob must be torn between wearing a mask and ruining his makeup and not wearing a mask and getting the virus. These hugley imminant threats to America are what’s on dear leader’s mind each morning as he watches his adminstration fail.

      Golf and a whore anyone!!! trump / putin 2020!!! MAKE WHORES MINIMUM WAGE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. A ‘nonsense’ decision made by an all-republican group of small-town city leaders and fire and police. They told you why too; because “inconsistency with people observing physical distancing requirements reaffirmed their conclusions”. You all wont wear a mask and stay 6′, so you don’t get to have nice things.

  1. So, Bend can safely plan but Redmond can’t? I’m guessing part of the decision was made based on bathroom use. Redmond never provides portable bathrooms and the public goes in random locations without proper disposure. Get a clue Redmond.
