Posted

The city of Litchfield Park and The Wigwam Resort announced Thursday afternoon, July 2 cancelation of their Independence Day fireworks show scheduled for 9 p.m. Saturday, July 4.

“Together we believe this is in the best interests of our community. We look forward to continuing this beloved tradition next year and, in the meantime, we wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday weekend,” the city announced in a post on its Facebook page.

“In partnership with the city of Litchfield Park, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the decision to cancel our 2020 Fourth of July Fireworks Show,” Wigwam officials announced on the resort’s website, wigwamarizona.com. “At The Wigwam, our priority is first and foremost the safety and well-being of our valued patrons and team members.”

When they initially announced the show, officials encouraged residents to watch from home or their vehicles, while resort guest watched from their rooms.

Those with questions about existing reservations at The Wigwam, Red’s Bar & Grill or Wigwam Bar were advised to call 866-976-6894 for reservations, 623-856-1094 for Red’s or 623-258-4676 for the bar.

“We look forward to continuing this beloved tradition next year and, in the meantime, we wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday weekend,” officials said.

Litchfield Park joins Buckeye and Goodyear in canceling Southwest Valley fireworks shows as spikes on COVID-19 infections continue rising throughout the state.
