Update: Stone Mountain Park's fireworks shows have been canceled.

The Fourth of July, like so many 2020 celebrations, will be different in the age of COVID-19.

Many traditional Independence Day events and fireworks shows are canceled or postponed this year, including in Decatur, Dunwoody, Avondale Estates and Chamblee.

However, there are still places to go if you are itching to get out and see a fireworks show to celebrate the Fourth.

South DeKalb

On Friday, July 3, DeKalb County is hosting a drive-in movie night and fireworks show at The Gallery at South DeKalb mall. The socially distanced event is free, but only the first 200 cars and 50 people who walk up will be able to attend.


The city of Tucker will host a fireworks show and concert on July 3. Residents are asked to find a socially distant spot on or around Main Street to watch the fireworks, or watch a live stream of the show on the city's social media channels.

The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. at Tucker Brewing Company’s outdoor stage, followed by the fireworks show around 9:30.

Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain Park has canceled its popular fireworks shows that celebrate the Fourth of July because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision was made “due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the desire to maintain social distancing for the health and well-being of our employees and guests,” park spokeswoman Angela Walton told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The park had previously planned to hold the Stone Mountain Park Lasershow Spectacular from July 1 to 7, followed by a patriotic fireworks show each night.
