In spite of the coronavirus pandemic, Holden will hold its traditional fireworks display on the 4th of July.
Sponsored by the City of Holden and the Holden Chamber of Commerce, the grand display will be held at the Holden City Park at dusk on Saturday, July 4th.
Residents are encouraged to watch the fireworks from their cars, or from home if they live close enough to the park.
The Holden Parks & Recreation Department will be selling popcorn, water and snow cones for $1, starting around 7 p.m.
There will also be a DJ in the park providing music for the Independence Day celebration.
Remember to practice social distancing and all other CDC guidelines during this precarious time as we reopen our town and country.
Holden Mayor Doyle Weeks commented on the celebration as it relates to the pandemic.
He said, “We need to keep our distance from each other.
With that being said, most of the time people park their cars and sit by them. “Or they sit in the stands in small groups.
We need to be smart. I don’t want to cancel this event. We need to celebrate and have something to look forward to.”
So, the celebration of America’s independence will go on in Holden, despite the current situation in our world.
Make plans to safely watch the spectacular fireworks display with your family, and enjoy some snacks and music, while being mindful of social distancing.
