Wausau, Wis. (WAOW) - The Wausau Area 4th of July Celebration for 2020 has been canceled.

The event chair said in a press release sent out Thursday that after looking at the ‘Badger Bounce Back’ program, speaking to the Marathon County Health Dept, vendors and other participants, they were unable to delay in making the decision any longer.

"I still think people are gonna be looking for something and that's why it was a very hard decision to make but it still at the same time the decision had to be made because the risks were just a little to large yet," said chair Kevin Malovrh of the Wausau 4th of July Celebration.

This year would have been the event's 75th anniversary, but Malovrh says they will plan a big celebration for next year.
