June 24, 2020

4th of July won't be complete without a fireworks show, right? Many planned fireworks shows around the county have been cancelled due to the pandemic, but there are a few places left where you can see it.

El Cajon:

The July 4th Independence Day Fireworks show will still go on as planned at 9pm from John F. Kennedy Park. However, no gatherings will be allowed at the park.
