As the annual Confluence Park fireworks display approaches on Saturday after having been approved by the Delta City Council, the City of Delta staff sent out a press release on social media and to the press to remind potential spectators of the event of the regulations in place.
The release states, Gov. Jared Polis’ recent public health order states, “Drive-in events such as theaters or fireworks displays are authorized to operate above the 10-person gathering limit so long as the participants remain in their vehicles...”
Confluence Park will be closed from 10 p.m. on July 3 until 2 a.m. on July 5, according to staff.
“Only authorized personnel will be allowed in the park,” the press release stated. “(Others) cannot walk into the park.”
There will be no common services, including public restrooms.
The City of Delta requested that all citizens stay home and watch from a distance. Those who choose not to stay home for the show are asked to stay in their vehicles and not block any streets or park on any highway.
The city requests that all social distancing be followed, with people no closer than 6 feet to each other, and that people wear cloth face coverings whenever in public as required by Polis’ executive order.
In short, according to the press release, the city asks that people do not gather.
“It is your personal responsibility to take these guidelines seriously,” the press release stated. “Failure to adhere to the Executive Orders issued from Governor Polis and local authority will result in severe health, safety and financial impacts in our community.”
