Annual Fireworks Show Canceled – Lake Nasworthy Parks Remain ClosedPress Release
SAN ANGELO, TX – San Angelo officials Friday morning confirmed the annual fireworks show planned for the 4th of July at Lake Nasworthy have been canceled so parks around the lake will remain closed as well.
Here is a statement by San Angelo Mayor Brenda Gunter:
“I applaud the leadership of the Lake Nasworthy Homeowners Association for the decision to postpone the Fourth of July fireworks show. I know this was not an easy decision to make. After Governor Greg Abbott’s announcement yesterday regarding masks and limiting gatherings to 10 people, this decision to postpone the fireworks was made in the best interest of the citizens of San Angelo. I greatly appreciate the Lake Nasworthy HOA’s leadership and them taking a strong position as it relates to the health and safety of all of the citizens,” Mayor Brenda Gunter said.
Since the 4th of July firework show has been postponed to a later date, the parks around Lake Nasworthy will remain closed for all activities (including camping) until July 13. Public boat ramps will remain open for people to launch boats into the lake.
The decision to close the parks around Lake Nasworthy was made to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We currently have over 200 active cases of COVID-19 in Tom Green County.
