City of Avon announces July 4 fireworks show will take place at Crusher Stadium

Visitors are asked to park in the stadium lot and watch from their cars, or just outside their vehicles.

AVON, Ohio — Concerns about the spread of COVID-19 has caused several communities across Northeast Ohio to cancel their July 4 fireworks celebrations.

One city in Lorain County is determined to put on a show, however. 

On Saturday, Avon Mayor Bryan Jensen announced in a letter posted on Facebook that the city's 'biggest fireworks display ever' will take place on Saturday, July 4 starting at 9:30 at Crusher Stadium.

Visitors are asked to park their cars in the stadium lot and watch from inside their vehicles, or just outside their cars. Additional parking will be at the east entrance to the stadium off Recreation Lane in the grass. The stadium itself will not be open. 

"I believe we can safely host a fireworks display as long as folks social distance, wear masks, and stay in or near the immediate vicinity of their car to watch the display," Jensen wrote. "I am hoping this is one small way that families can get together to celebrate our country's independence and reflect on things we are grateful for."
