The Fourth of July is undoubtedly going to look a lot different this year as many cities have already canceled their fireworks shows and other celebrations.

4th Fest of Greater Racine has pulled the plug and canceled this year's fireworks show after previously saying the festival would go on as planned. And they were somewhat right, as the parade has not been canceled.

Instead, festival organizers say alternative plans are being made for the parade.

"If people can't come to watch the parade, we will bring the parade to the people - where they live and in their neighborhoods," reads the 4th Fest website.

Specific details on the plans for the parade are yet to be released.

Milwaukee's Lakefront Fireworks were canceled in April.
