Oshkosh, Wis. (WFRV) — After much discussion and input from the Winnebago County Health Department, the city of Oshkosh has made the difficult decision to cancel the 4th of July Parade and the Festival Foods Fireworks show.

Oshkosh’s city manager said the decision was made due to concerns regarding COVID-19.
