July 4th Fireworks
A coalition of local organizations will be underwriting a community fireworks display, produced by Lantis Fireworks, on Saturday, July 4, 2020. The show will begin at approximately 10:15 p.m. from the Sioux City Sue water tower in the Singing Hills area of Morningside.
Viewers of the fireworks are asked to practice social distancing and, ideally, will view from inside of or very near their vehicles, if possible. The valley below the water tower, along with the surrounding area, offers many safe opportunities to view the show.
Sponsors of the fireworks display include the Sioux City Explorers, Sioux City Bandits, Sioux City Musketeers, Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, The Siouxland Initiative, Thompson Electric Company, City of Sioux City and the Saturday in the Park Festival. After the COVID-19 related cancellations of most of the sports seasons, concerts, festivals, and many other community events, this coalition of local organizations came together to provide safe, free entertainment for the community during these difficult times.
Mayor Bob Scott shared, “We appreciate the collaboration and support of these local organizations. Their generosity will allow our community to celebrate the 4th of July with a fantastic fireworks show in a safe way.”
