A preview of fireworks planned for Fort Thomas Fourth of July activities that was set for Tuesday has been moved to Wednesday, June 24. The fireworks test will still go off at 10 p.m. in three local parks — Tower Park, Rossford Park and Highland Hills Park.
The test will give residents an opportunity to scout out a spot in their yards or within their neighborhoods to see the planned fireworks display at 10 p.m. on July 4.
Unlike other years, this year’s fireworks display will be presented in all three parks and will be designed to go off at a higher altitude. This will allow for residents to see the display from different locations throughout the city.
The display provides an opportunity to see traditional fireworks for the Fourth, without risk of exposure to the CORONA virus. By staying at or near home, people will avoid crowds and maintain health and safety guidelines in place to combat spread of the virus.
The fireworks display is a culmination of special events planned for the Fourth of July in Fort Thomas. For more information on what’s happening, go to the Fort Thomas city website.
