The displays, which are being coordinated together, will light up the night sky at 9:45 p.m. A few test shots are getting fired off from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. to help fireworks lovers see where they need to be for the best views.
Everyone is strongly encouraged to watch the shows from their own homes and maintain proper social distancing while outside.
