JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – With the goal of having a fireworks show Mayor Lenny Curry says will be “bigger, better and safer,” the city of Jacksonville on Thursday announced that 4th of July fireworks will be launched from multiple locations.
The locations include:
- Downtown Jacksonville
- St. Johns Town Center Mall
- Northside: FSCJ North Campus
- Southside: The Avenues Mall
- Westside: Normandy/Lem Merrett Park
- Arlington: Ed Austin Regional Park
The additional locations are so residents can safely watch while being socially-distanced in their communities.
People can still view the Downtown fireworks from the Northbank and Southbank along the St. Johns River. For people who wish to view from home, the fireworks show will be televised on Channel 4 during the Red, White and Boom special. The two hour show that features musical groups will culminate with the Jacksonville Fireworks Spectacular.
“Red, White and Boom” will be hosted by News4Jax anchors Vic Micolucci and Lauren Verno. It will air on WJXT, Channel 4 from 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, July 4.
The fireworks display is scheduled to begin at 9:45 p.m.
