FLORENCE-On Wednesday, October 21 it was announced that the 39th annual Spirit of Freedom Celebration which normally would have been held on July 4th but due to the COVID-19 pandemic was moved to  November 11, 2020 at McFarland Park in Florence has been cancelled.
Reasoning for the cancelation was given as the uncertainty of the pandemic and the strict guidelines imposed by the State Fire Marshal’s office to keep the large number of people expected safe.
 It was determined the venue would not be in the best interest for the safety of those in attendance therefore Florence Mayor, Steve Holt, and Mike Self, General Manager of Singing River Media Group, made the decision to cancel the Spirit of Freedom Celebration to ensure the safety of the persons attending this festival.
The City of Florence and Singing River Media Group and the City of Florence look forward to next year’s Spirit of Freedom Celebration, which will return to it’s normal day and time, July 4, 2021 in McFarland Park.
