ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — The city of Enterprise is known for many of its great attractions, but one of the largest events is their annual Whoville Celebration.

After the year 2020 has been, lots of cities have been canceling events or putting events online to keep crowd numbers low, but Enterprise is certain they can continue their traditions while staying safe.

“We are all being very mindful that we still want to keep the spirit but keep safety,” Tourism Director Tammy Doerer said. “So we’re encouraging people to wear their masks. We also know a lot of these events families are coming as a family unit so we’ll encourage them to stay in those small groupings.”

Coffee County EMA Director James Brown is still concerned about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, even with the events being mainly outdoors.

“By putting on the mask even when your outside it prevents your particles from entering somebody else’s body and potentially infecting them with COVID,” Brown said. “So we always recommend if you’re in a group, wear a mask. If you’re in a group try to maintain that six-footed distance, even if you’re outside you can still infect somebody else.”

So as the seasonal events grow closer, remember to be responsible and stay safe, as well as keeping others safe.

“So we are asking people to please be mindful, be personally responsible,” Doerer said. “Again our business owners wear masks to keep you safe and they certainly would ask you to do that.”

“We want you to feel comfortable coming out and we’re providing a great environment to do that for all of our events,” Doerer finished.
