ANDERSON, Ind. — Many events planned for this summer in Anderson have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a released statement, Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. says he is “disappointed” that the crisis “makes it necessary” to cancel activities like summer parks camps and concerts. Anderson will also not have a 4th of July parade or fireworks celebration. The city pool will also stay closed.

“While some portions of the country are beginning to see signs of a flattening of the curve, many areas are not, including the Anderson and Madison County area,” he said. “It has been projected, by federal authorities, that a vaccine may be available in 12-18 months.”

He noted that many of the events take a lot of preparation time, which is not able to happen right now. Broderick did say he will try to “bring back all of these events, and even more, once the dangers of this virus have passed.”
