FACTS

    Due to reports of rising coronavirus cases nationwide, many cities have canceled upcoming Fourth of July fireworks shows. A Philadelphia city spokesperson said that the events cause crowds to gather in “close proximity, which is not recommended at this time due to potential spread of COVID-19.”

    “It’s the home of the brave, all right, but with coronavirus creeping back, it might not feel like the land of the free when it comes to celebrating Independence Day.”

    Mount Rushmore, however, will still carry on with their fireworks event which 125,000 people requested tickets for. The parks department held a lottery last week in which 7,500 names were randomly drawn. President Trump is rumored to be attending the Mount Rushmore show.

    RESPONSE

    Chicago is instead “inviting residents to plan socially distant dance parties of up to 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors with a live broadcast that includes a dance lesson and salsa music.” While surrounding cities have canceled their fireworks displays, Poway, California is offering limited pre-paid parking passes for the surrounding area to come view their city’s show over a lake β€“ from your car. Detroit has moved their fireworks celebration to August 31st and will be broadcasting it on television only. Portland, Michigan announced that due to the stadium’s size, which is appropriate for social distancing measures, they will still hold their live fireworks event β€“ on July 3rd.
