IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Town of Irondequoit has canceled all of its Fourth of July celebrations this year.
That includes the parade and fireworks display.
The town’s annual two-day Independence Day festival brings tens of thousands of visitors to the Town Hall Campus, making it one of the largest celebrations in Upstate New York.
Town Supervisor Dave Seeley says the annual tradition will return next year.
The town decided to cancel the festival in April, but held out hope that it may still be able to put on a fireworks display. The town says as surrounding towns decided to cancel their fireworks displays, there was chance that there would be a surge of people from other towns.
