August 24, 2021- Due to recent circumstances and out of an abundance of caution, the Green Cove Springs Police Department has decided to cancel Rock the Dock, an annual fundraiser for the City-organized Trunk or Treat, and this year’s Trunk or Treat event.
Due to rising cases of COVID-19, the Police Department has come to the conclusion that it would be extremely difficult to hold both events with COVID safety measures, especially social distancing, as the location space for both events are small and have had tightly-packed crowds in the past.
This has been a difficult decision for the Police Department, as officers and staff look forward to organizing Truck or Treat for the community all year. However, the department feels that this is the best decision to keep the Green Cove Springs community safe and help stop the spread of COVID-19.
“While we always like to showcase our City with our City-organized events, we are also serious about making sure that our Citizens and staff remain safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. We will work to make next year’s event even better,” said Green Cove Springs City Manager Steve Kennedy.
