As with almost everything in 2020, Fourth of July fireworks might look a bit different this year.
In Pascagoula, they are providing multiple ways for their residents to watch the shows. Main Street Pascagoula will be hosting their annual Independence Day fireworks show this year online and in-person.
The professional pyrotechnics display will be shot from a barge offshore. The show will be streamed online through WGUD’s Facebook page and the City of Pascagoula’s YouTube channel.
If you want to see the show in person they will be visible anywhere along Beach Boulevard or from a boat offshore.
The city asks that everyone who chooses to attend the fireworks show in person to practice social distancing. Pascagoula Public Information Officer Katarina Luketich said, “You know, we are in the midst of a global pandemic and we do want to make sure that we are keeping our number of COVID cases down. So, this will afford people the opportunity who don’t feel comfortable coming out in person to be able to watch safely from home. If people do want to come there is so much room for them to social distance.”
The fireworks are set to begin at 8:45 p.m. on Saturday, July 4th. It’s recommended that you get ther early to find parking and a place to sit.
