The Hopkins County 4th of July celebration planned to be held downtown Sulphur Springs this weekend has officially been cancelled.
City and county officials meet at 10:30 a.m. Monday to discuss the impact Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-28 will have locally, particularly the Hopkins County 4th of July celebration.
Just before 11 a.m. Monday, June 29, city officials reported that Sulphur Springs Mayor Johns Sellers, after much consideration, and in light of the Governor’s recent executive order, has decided to cancel the Independence Day event this weekend on Celebration Plaza.
“It’s unfortunate that we need to take these measures, but these are extraordinary times. It’s better to be safe than sorry,” he said. “We are confidant that Hopkins County will continue to thrive during these extraordinary times, physically and economically.”
