Panama City will have fireworks but no celebrations for the public
PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG) -
Panama City’s Salute To Freedom celebration will look a little different this year because of the current state of the Covid-19 outbreak. At the regular Panama City commission meeting, it was announced that the fireworks celebration would follow the recommended guidelines of the Governor’s reopening plan.
Now, there will be three fireworks shows on the fourth starting in Millville at 9:00 p.m. from Watson bayou, then at Sweetbay at 9:15 p.m. from the old runway, followed by a fireworks display at the City Marina at 9:30 p.m.
The will be no official viewing area at any of the sites.
City Manager, Mark McQueen added “The idea is that we are distributing these across the city so that we can observe social distancing and allow residents to be able to see the fireworks displays from their homes, their back yards, and in the neighborhoods they live.”
The amended plan encourages small gatherings and backyard barbecues with your families and neighbors, practicing social distancing, and relaxing.
