SEATTLE (AP) - Organizers of the longtime annual Seafair festival in Seattle have announced its major events will not happen this summer.

“Given the uncertainty surrounding public health safety, and combined with guidance from local and state governments, Seafair is rescheduling its major events to next year,” an announcement on the website said Wednesday.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels and July 4 fireworks shows will not happen in 2020. The Blue Angels are confirmed for Aug. 6-8, 2021, organizers said.

Other Seafair canceled events include the July 4th celebration at Gas Works Park and Lake Union Park, the Milk Carton Derby, the Seafair Triathlon, Torchlight Run, Torchlight Parade, and Seafair Weekend Festival.

Organizers say ticket holders for any event will be contacted with an email soon.
