SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Cal Expo annual July 4th fireworks show has been canceled.
"For more than two years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cal Expo has been unable to host our usual public events, including the CA State Fair & Food Festival," officials said in a post on the Cal Expo website. "As we are preparing to host the 2022 CA State Fair & Food Festival starting on July 15, we are facing staffing and resource shortages that have created unexpected difficulties."
