KENOSHA — The City of Kenosha is postponing its Fourth of July fireworks show due to COVID-19.

The city said it will postpone the fireworks and celebration to Sept. 6, Labor Day weekend.

“Celebrating Independence Day with a parade and fireworks is one of our community’s favorite traditions,” Mayor John Antaramian said. “However, it would not be responsible for the city to host a gathering with large crowds at this point in time.”

The city also canceled its 2020 Kenosha Civic Veterans Parade that was scheduled for June 28.

Kenosha is joining a growing list of cities and towns canceling events. Milwaukee canceled its July 3 Lakefront Fireworks on Monday. Glendale canceled its show earlier this month.
