County and City Officials Scratch Labor Day Fireworks

Coconut Telegraph

The annual fireworks show over the Manatee River originally scheduled for the Fourth of July and delayed until Labor Day has been postponed again to avoid large gatherings next month. Local COVID-19 numbers led Manatee County Administrator Cheri Coryea, Bradenton Mayor Wayne Poston and Palmetto Mayor Shirley Groover Bryant to cancel the Labor Day fireworks. “Once again we find ourselves needing to postpone the ‘July 4th Fireworks’ due to COVID-19,” Bryant said. “We ask everyone to follow all the safety guidelines for this awful virus so we might return to normal soon and reschedule, as we do have much to celebrate and be thankful for.”
