(Columbus) The Columbus 4th of July Festival has been cancelled. President of the Columbus 4th of July Organization Inc. Roger Venden says planning for the celebration began long before COVID-19 appeared and it was the desire of the committee to hold the festival in a safe manner for the community. He says as events over the past few weeks have evolved, they find it necessary to take this action to prevent any unnecessary impact on their partners. Venden thanked all local businesses and community organizations for their support as well as volunteers who put in countless hours in planning the festival.
