Star Spangled Springfield Postponed For 2021

Spirit of Springfield has shared some more sad news this afternoon. After having to postpone the "World's Largest Pancake Breakfast" for a second year in a row, they have also made the difficult decision to postpone their annual 4th of July celebration "Star Spangled Springfield".

“Although fairs and festivals can have 50% capacity, the Spirit of Springfield is not able to control the number of people gathering for July 4th festivities since they are free and open to the public,” stated Spirit of Springfield President Judy Matt. “We are optimistic that there will fireworks in Springfield before the end of 2021.”

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that they can still pull something off in the fall. For more visit
