Fourth of July fireworks around metro Atlanta changed, canceled for 2020

Metro Atlanta’s usual July Fourth celebrations will be dampened this year by the fear of coronavirus, which has led numerous cities and counties to cancel their plans.

Fireworks and parades, typically as much a part of the summer holiday as flags and pool parties, have been canceled around the four-county metro area.

Two of the largest and most popular locations, in Centennial Olympic Park and Stone Mountain, both announced Thursday that their shows were canceled for this year.

Some cities are still planning to celebrate Independence Day with drive-by parades or virtual events held at a distance or enjoyed by video. So put on a patriotic mask, keep a safe distance, and enjoy the holiday reimagined during the pandemic.
