The U.S. Air Force 18th Wing announced on March 4 the cancellation of “AmericaFest 2020,” which was originally scheduled to be held at the U.S. military’s Kadena base on April 25, in a bid to prevent infection with the new type of coronavirus from spreading. The base is planning to hold the event next year.


Brig. Gen. Joel L. Carey, the Kadena Air Base Commander,  said: “Our top priority is to protect safety in and outside the base. It’s disappointing that the event was canceled because we’d been looking forward to it very much.”
