Turkey Cove Fireworks Canceled but the Cruise Will Go On
The Lodge at Turkey Cove has canceled its annual Fourth of July fireworks show, leaving Canyon Lake without any options for official celebrations.
On Sunday, it confirmed the recent spike in COVID-19 cases left it looking for alternative dates later this year.
“We feel it is in the best interest of public safety,” a representative for the Lodge at Turkey Cove, located on the south side of the lake, said.
Last week, City of New Braunfels also said it was postponing its popular Fourth of July Landa Parks fireworks display and closed its river parks.
On June 15, Startz Memorial VFW Post Commander Greg Brannan announced it was canceling its Annual Fourth of July Parade due to COVID-19, saying it was forced to balance public safety with traditional patriotism.
“While this warmed our hearts and inspirted personal patriotism, continuing this tradition in today’s pandemic would put our community at risk,” he said.
One annual tradition that isn’t canceled is the Canyon Cruiser’s July 4 cruise, set from 7 to 9:45 p.m.
Mike Perry, whose works in sales, said Canyon Cruiser will look for fireworks after leaving the marina where it’s berthed.
