PICKERINGTON, Ohio (WCMH) — Pickerington will host an Independence Day fireworks display Saturday night, but is urging residents to watch from their homes.
On a Facebook post Saturday, the Pickerington Police said usual places where residents gathered to watch the displays in years’ past — Victory Park, Ridgeview Junior High, and Pickerington High School Central — will be closed to spectators for this year’s event.
The police department also posted a map of streets that will be closed from 8-11 p.m. for the fireworks. Those roads include portions of Opportunity Way, Lockville Road, East Columbus Street, and Park Alley.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all other 4th of July celebrations in the city were cancelled for 2020.
The fireworks will be launched from the Pickerington High School Central practice field starting at 10 p.m.
