Two Big 4th of July Firework Shows Still Plan on Taking Place in WNY
As we sit just a few days away from the start of June, many in Western New York still have the Fourth of July still on their mind. What shows will be taking place this 4th of July holiday and what will they look like?
While knowing exactly what kind of guidelines we will see for the firework shows that will take place, we do know two major shows are still planning on taking place.
According to WKBW, Town of Tonawanda's Supervisor, Joe Emminger said Tonawanda does plan on holding its fireworks display for July 2nd. However, the Memorial Day parade has been called off.
Also, according to the Observer Today, Mayville will be moving forward with its annual Fourth of July firework show. The display can usually be seen over Chautauqua Lake, making it a beautiful show to view in person. If you remember last year, this was one of the few major fireworks displays that did happen in Western New York last Fourth of July.
However, the Fourth of July parade in Mayville will not take place.
There's still a sense many towns will still hold their firework shows this holiday, according to Matt Shaw, the Owner of Skylighters Fireworks in Orchard Park.
“Most of the big towns are moving forward along with the small towns too,” Shaw said. “I would expect every town to have fireworks this season.”
Let's hope more happen than don't. Amherst has already canceled their annual Fourth of July fireworks show that takes place at UB's North Campus.
