Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, local firework displays might look different as we come together to celebrate the Fourth of July this year. To adhere to social distancing guidelines for large gatherings, many local cities are doing firework displays families can watch from the comfort of their homes and cars.
Check out how you and your family can celebrate the Fourth of July this year with amazing displays of fireworks!
All American 4th Fireworks in Plano
They will launch fireworks from Lavon Farms near the Plano Event Center because its location is on higher ground, allowing residents to view the fireworks from their homes, neighborhoods, or cars. They will also livestream the firework show on their Facebook Page, so if you can’t see it from your neighborhood, you can always watch it online!
Although the City of Plano’s Fourth of July celebration will look different this year, they will still set their display to music on the radio station KLAK 97.5. Fireworks will start between 9:30-10:00 PM on Saturday, July 4.
Check out their website for their Viewing Area Map, so you can plan how to safely watch fireworks with the family to celebrate the Fourth of July this year!
Spirit in the Sky in Allen
Due to COVID-19, Market Street Allen USA Celebration is cancelled, but there will still be fireworks to celebrate Independence Day! The City of Allen is excited to announce their firework display to celebrate the Fourth of July this year: Spirit in the Sky – A Fireworks Tribute to the Allen Community Presented by Credit Union of Texas.
Spirit in the Sky will take place on Friday, July 3, at 9:30 PM, at the corner of W. Exchange Parkway and N. Watters Road. This is a 25-minute show with larger shells that will be deployed higher so that the fireworks can be seen from further away and the city’s residents can maintain social distance while enjoying a beautiful display with their friends and family.
If you are watching the show from your car, tune into KLAK 97.5 to hear music synchronized with the fireworks. For more information about viewing the City of Allen’s fireworks while adhering to social distancing guidelines, check out their website.
