July 4 Fireworks Have Been Canceled All Over Miami, But You Can See Them Here

Updated Wednesday at 5:54 a.m.

The Fourth of July is going to look a little different around Miami this year.

The annual Bayfront Park fireworks show was canceled after officials decided the risks of the COVID-19 pandemic were still too great to invite tens of thousands of people to pack downtown.

Some other cities also decided to skip fireworks this year, including Coral Gables, which won’t host its annual fireworks show at the Biltmore, plus Palmetto Bay and Key Biscayne (though Key Biscayne will have a parade).
