News Release

State Orders Prohibiting Mass Gatherings Cause Cancellation of Moreno Valley's 4th of July Events

For immediate release: June 12, 2020

Due to orders by Governor Newsom and the State Public Health Officer still in place prohibiting mass gatherings of more than 100 people to help slow the spread of coronavirus, Moreno Valley Interim City Manager Mike Lee has announced the cancellation of the City's 2020 4th of July Parade, Family FunFest and Fireworks Show.

The City waited as long as possible before canceling this time-honored Moreno Valley tradition in hopes that the state orders might have been relaxed enough to allow the celebration to go forward.

Funds previously allocated for the 2020 4th of July events will be set aside and budgeted to make next year’s celebration even more grand. As always, the iconic M on Box Springs Mountain will be lighted in red, white and blue for the holiday.


Las Órdenes Estatales que Prohíben Las Reuniones en Grande Causan La Cancelación de Los Eventos del 4 de julio en Moreno Valley

Debido a las órdenes del Gobernador Newsom y el Oficial de Salud Pública del Estado que prohíben las reuniones en grande, de más de 100 personas para ayudar a detener la propagación del coronavirus, el Administrador Provisional de la Ciudad de Moreno Valley, Mike Lee, anunció la cancelación del desfile del 4 de julio 2020 de la Ciudad, Festival de Familia, y el espectáculo de Fuegos Artificiales.

La ciudad esperó el mayor tiempo posible antes de cancelar esta tradición de Moreno Valley, con la esperanza de que las órdenes estatales pudieran haber sido lo suficientemente relajadas para permitir que la celebración siguiera adelante.

Los fondos asignados anteriormente para los eventos del 4 de julio de 2020 se reservarán y se establecerán para que la celebración del próximo año sea aún más grande. Como siempre, la icónica M en Box Springs Mountain se iluminará en rojo, blanco y azul para el día festivo.
