Fourth of July fireworks called off in Kewaunee while Algoma B&B show is a go
KEWAUNEE COUNTY – One of the county's annual Fourth of July celebrations and fireworks shows has been called off this year because of concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, but another is taking place with public health precautions.
The day-long Independence Day celebration sponsored by the Kewaunee Area Chamber of Commerce, which traditionally includes music, food, a parade and fireworks, has been canceled.
" … the event has grown into a large, well-attended, family-fun event," a press release from the chamber said. "The size of our event prevents us from complying with social distancing restrictions, causing us to cancel. Keeping our community safe and healthy is our top priority."
In Algoma, Dave's Annual Fireworks Show is scheduled to take place at dusk July 4 over the Lake Michigan waters outside At the Water's Edge Bed and Breakfast, N7136 State 42.
It is open to the public, but At the Water's Edge owner David Anderson said the number of people allowed on the shoreline will be limited to allow for social distancing. He said spectators also can watch from the front lawn along State 42, again while practicing recommended social distancing.
