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.”￼
