COVID-19 Precautions

Recommendations

The City will be taking precautions and following the most up-to-date recommendations of the CDC and protocols put forth by governor Greg Abbott. This is an outdoor daylong event and guests are encouraged to follow CDC recommendations. Social distancing is expected to be maintained during all aspects of the event. In order to ensure the health and safety of festival attendees, the City will also provide hand sanitizer and hand washing stations for visitors.

Vendors

Vendor booths will be separated to create at least 10 feet of physical distance between vendors, which is 4 feet further than CDC recommends. Additionally, vendors will be encouraged to clean and sanitize areas that are frequently touched and only allow a certain number of people in the booth at a time.

Fireworks

Spectators can remain at City Hall after the festival, relocate to Brule Field, or sit in their cars to view the firework show at 9 PM.

Reminders

State officials issued the following reminders:

  • Individuals are encouraged to wear appropriate face coverings.

  • People should not be in groups greater than ten when possible.

  • People over the age of 65 are encouraged to stay at home as much as possible.

  • People are still asked to avoid nursing homes, state supported living centers, assisted living facilities, or long-term care facilities.
