Your annual Fourth of July plans may be changing this year. The fireworks at the Empire State Plaza are being postponed.

New York State Office of General Services Commissioner RoAnn Destito announced New York State’s Fourth of July celebration is being postponed to avoid the large gathering, according to the Saratogian.

The fireworks show usually kicks off the annual Summer at the Plaza series. Along with the fireworks show, all other concerts and festivals are canceled until further notice.

The firework show has partnered with Price Chopper since the country’s bicentennial in 1976.

Mona Golub, VP public relations and consumer services for Price Chopper/Market 32 said “Under the circumstances, we agree with the approach the state is taking and believe that postponing this event is in the best interest of public health and safety. When the time is right, we look forward to continuing our partnership in providing quality, family entertainment in the heart of our capital”

No word on when the fireworks will be but they’re still announced as “postponed” and not yet “canceled.”
