There will be no 4th of July fireworks or parade in Fernley this year.

According to an announcement on the

, the annual event has been canceled because the city will not issue permits for the park or parade over liability concerns.

The celebration was slated for 10 a.m. on July 4 with a parade down Main St. with events planned throughout the day, followed by a fireworks show.

Organizers are now looking toward next year's event, saying in part:

We are petitioning the city to contribute the same amount in 2021 so we can "Celebrate Our Nation the Old Fashioned Way" with a MUCH larger Firework show!

Anyone who has already submitted an application or sent in a donation will be receiving a refund.
