This 4th Of July, Be Smart And Safe When You Set Off Fireworks and When You Gather with Friends or Family.
Fireworks shows continue to fizzle this summer as officials work to prevent large gatherings that could spread the coronavirus.
Salt Lake City residents and others can still host their own private fireworks shows. Capital city officials encourage limiting those gatherings to 20 people and urge attendees to wear masks and practice social distancing.
In lieu of a public fireworks show, the city is calling on residents and business to decorate their properties in patriotic colors. A city events team will evaluate the displays from 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Independence Day and issue prizes for the best overall décor; best use of red, white and blue; most creative décor; and most patriotic neighborhood. Participants can register for the “Red, White and You” contest by filling out a Google form.
*Be sure to follow guidelines for your specific county. Look up rules and regulations and possible events happening around you.
|Our office will be closed on July 3rd to observe the holiday.
