We regret to announce that our Riverdale City July 4th Old Glory Days celebration has been cancelled for 2020. After much thought and consideration, it was determined that the large crowds at our activities make it impossible to follow the established social distancing guidelines put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19. In addition, the Weber/Morgan Health Department is not issuing mass gathering permits that would allow the events to move forward.
We look forward to planning a great event for 2021. We hope everyone has a safe and healthy Fourth of July.
