Due to social distancing concerns, the City’s Community Fireworks Display typically held on July 4 has been moved to Veterans Day, November 11, this year.

With the public's health and safety in mind, there will be no on-site event. Residents are encouraged to watch from their homes or cars if possible and avoid gathering in large groups. Use social distancing from those not in your household, remaining at least six feet away from others, even when outdoors.
