DELTONA, Fla. – Deltona Mayor Heidi K. Herzberg said the Fourth of July fireworks show has been postponed amid the spread of the coronavirus.

Herzberg said the show will happen during the Labor Day weekend in September, although an exact date and time of the event hasn’t been established.

She wants to make it clear the show is not canceled.

City officials also announced Friday that they are beginning the second phase of access to public parks, which involves opening playgrounds, restrooms and tennis courts. Splash pads, fields, pavilions and gymnasiums remain closed.

Across Central Florida, Fourth of July events have been canceled or rescheduled.

In Orlando, the annual Fireworks at the Fountain at Lake Eola will be replaced with a pre-recorded fireworks special aired on News 6.

Orange City has canceled its show while New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater have opted to postpone.
