REDDING, Calif. – The 4th of July fireworks show at the Redding Civic Auditorium will go on this year, but without the freedom festival.
The fireworks show will take place at 10 p.m. Saturday, July 4. The show's soundtrack will be simulcast on two local stations, starting at 10 p.m.
Q97/97.3 “Today’s Country” and Red 103.1 “Redding’s Classic Rock,” will broadcast coordinated music in an effort to help the community enjoy the show from safe, alternative locations.
Redding city officials said the freedom festival was canceled in compliance with current state and local guidelines to help curb the spread of coronavirus. Residents are encouraged to find safe, socially distanced locations to enjoy the show this year.
Access to the Redding Civic Auditorium grounds will be closed all day July 4th and there will be traffic control methods in place. City leaders said parking will be available for visitors to Turtle Bay and Sheraton Hotel guests only.
