2020 Fourth of July Festival

Due to COVID-19, the City of Florence was unable to hold its traditional Fourth of July Festival. Despite social distancing requirements, Florence was still able to celebrate in a memorable way with a socially-distanced wet & dry parade, two outdoor movie nights, sidewalk chalk art and patriotic yard decorating contests, and a fireworks display!

Florence Outdoor Movie Nights

On Thursday, July 2nd and Friday, July 3rd, the City of Florence and the Gordon Family were able to host a drive-in style movie night for families to enjoy while following social distancing guidelines.

Social Distancing Wet & Dry Parade

The City of Florence and several community organizations participated in the wet & dry parade, social-distancing style! Rather than having the community gather on Main Street, the parade route went into the residential neighborhoods so families could still join in on the fun from their yards. This event received positive feedback and will definitely be remembered for years to come!
