Stand Up Delaware hosting Red, White and Blue 4th of July Celebration
DOVER, Del. — Despite the official 4th of July parade and fireworks being cancelled in Dover, the city says there will still be a celebration outdoors on the Legislative Mall.
The Red, White and Blue celebration for America event will be from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday and is free to the general public.
We’re told it’s a collaboration with Stand Up Delaware and Dover City Councilman David Anderson for a non-political, non-partisan, positive event that will celebrate the nation’s 244th birthday. Event organizers also say the celebration will acknowledge the efforts of all who protect freedoms including veterans, police, and first responders.
There will be a live DJ, food vendors, a raffle, Chinese auction and prayers of unity at the event. Proceeds from the event will go toward repairing the Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial on the mall that was defaced in June.
Stand Up Delaware co-founder, Lisa McCulley encourages everyone to wear something patriotic and bring American flags because she says they “represent all of us.”
Event organizers say social distancing and wearing face masks are encouraged.
