The City of Paducah, Paducah Parks and Recreation, along with event sponsor Independence Bank is thrilled to announce a plan for the community to enjoy a July 4th fireworks celebration that allows for the continued attention to health and safety through social distancing.
On Saturday, July 4, the community is invited to turn its attention toward Paxton Park Golf Course for a fireworks show. The City has contracted again with Arthur Rozzi Pyrotechnics. The show will focus on the use of high aerial fireworks that will be visible from many parts of the city. Paxton Park will be closed to the public.
Parks & Recreation Department Director Mark Thompson said, “As many cities have made the decision to cancel their Independence Day events, we tried to be innovative and look for partnerships. I want to thank Paxton Park for their collaboration and for providing a great site centrally located to many neighborhoods. I encourage citizens to enjoy the fireworks show from their yards and sidewalks. After spending a little time determining an unobstructed viewing location away from a building or tree, I think this will turn into a memorable evening to celebrate our country.”
The fireworks show will begin at 9:15 p.m. with a rain date of Sunday, July 5 if needed.
You can tune in to the radio station 102.5 at 9:15 to listen along as the fireworks are set to music!
