ONEONTA – Looking forward to continued easing of COVID restrictions, Oneonta’s First Night Committee announces it is planning a “robust” Hometown Fourth of July celebration this year, according to David Hayes, an organizer.

The Hometown Fourth was canceled last year, due to COVID, as was the other major Fourth of July event in the county, the Springfield “oldest in the nation” parade, which has been cancelled again this year.

The Hometown Fourth committee will adjust its plans, as necessary, in June, based on guidance from the State of New York and the Otsego County Health Department, Hayes said.

Meanwhile, “we are planning a robust event,” he added.
