(Camden, NJ) – In light of the threat still posed by the coronavirus pandemic, the Camden County Freeholder Board is announcing the cancellation of all in-person summer programming, including its annual 4th of July celebration on the Camden Waterfront.
“In Camden County, we have always tried to provide a robust catalog of summer activities like concerts, festivals, and other programming where our residents can gather together during the summer,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Unfortunately, the public health crisis facing us this year has turned otherwise engaging, exciting events into dangerous opportunities for the coronavirus to spread. With the health and safety of our community in mind, we’ve determined that the best course of action is to eliminate unnecessary public gatherings for the summer season.”
Cancellations and rescheduling information are regularly being updated on the county’s webpage. Residents seeking additional recreational activities can also visit the page for more information on the region’s wineries, breweries, and attractions which are offering limited in-person programming during the summer months. The page is also being regularly updated to highlight opportunities for online engagement and virtual experiences that can offer fun for the whole family.
“Even with this unfortunate news, there are still countless ways to enjoy the summer thanks to the incredible businesses and attractions that call Camden County home,” Cappelli said. “Whether it is outdoor dining, a trip to the Camden County Driving Range, or a virtual tour of a nearby art exhibit, we hope everyone will be able to find something to enjoy in community until it is safe to bring back the events that we have all come to look forward to.”
