Fireworks – Brainerd
July 4 @ 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm
The Brainerd fireworks are a go and will be around 10pm Saturday, July 4th. Brainerd Community Action will be launching the fireworks from a slightly different location.
Fireworks are still a go in Brainerd, with both cities of Brainerd and Baxter allocating funds for the event.
But there won’t be a crowd of people on the hill outside Brainerd High School to watch the show this year. Instead, fireworks-goers are encouraged to stay in their cars and watch the show from afar.
The change is due not only to social distancing guidelines to help slow the spread of COVID-19, but also to ongoing construction at the high school.
Those who have traditionally viewed the fireworks from locations other than the high school bowl should have no problem seeing them again this year, Badeaux assured the community. The farther away from the center of town cars are, likely the harder it will be to see the fireworks, but Badeaux said they’ll be shot up as high as possible, and there won’t be any fireworks lower to the ground.
