Fireworks displays are being cancelled all over the country. Thankfully we are still planning on having our annual fireworks display at both Ogren Park and Southgate Mall. The only difference this year is that Southgate Mall will NOT have the grounds near the display open to the public. Allegience field will still be open, but limited capacity, much like the Thursday "Centerfield Cinema."

The Ogren Park fireworks display will take place Friday (July 3rd) and the Southgate Mall fireworks will take place on Saturday at 10:30pm

But there really is not much to be upset about. The fireworks displays are usually large enough that you can get "front row seats" from just about anywhere in town. And not having to fight the crowds is kind of a refreshing thought. Think about it. It really isn't that much fun having to show up super early to claim you little piece of territory in order to wait patiently for hours for the sun to go down and the fireworks display to begin. Not to mention the traffic that you have to wade through after the show in order to get back home.

Saturday Night Live alumni, and hilarious stand up comedian, Jim Breuer explains exactly why you shouldn't be too upset about not getting to experience the full aspect of the fireworks display this year.
