SIOUX CITY -- A community fireworks display, produced by Lantis Fireworks, will take place at approximately 10:15 p.m. Saturday at the Sioux City Sue water tower in the Singing Halls area of Sioux City.
Viewers of the fireworks are asked to practice social distancing and, ideally, remain inside or near their vehicles. The valley below the water tower offers many safe opportunities to view the show, organizers say.
Sponsors of the fireworks display include the Sioux City Explorers, the Sioux City Bandits, the Sioux City Musketeers, the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, The Siouxland Initiative, Thompson Electric Company, the City of Sioux City and the Saturday in the Park Festival.
After COVID-19 related cancellations of most of the sports seasons, concerts, festivals and many other community events, this coalition of local organizations came together to provide safe, free entertainment for the community during these difficult times.
"We appreciate the collaboration and support of these local organizations," Mayor Bob Scott said. "Their generosity will allow our community to celebrate the Fourth of July with a fantastic fireworks show in a safe way."
