UPDATE: The Cleveland fireworks show at Bradley Square Mall has been cancelled.
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Fireworks shows are going to be harder to find this year… at least around Chattanooga.
But there will be several of them if you are willing to drive a bit.
Just about all of the usual suspects in Hamilton County are off this year. (The closest drives will be Lookout Valley, Ringgold, Lakesite, Cleveland, Dunlap, and Trenton)
Some were cancelled by Covid-19 restrictions (Pops on the River, Collegedale, Camp Columbus). Others were sponsored by businesses that just aren’t open yet (Chattanooga Lookouts, Lake Winnie).
Some are offering hybrids. Signal Mountain has cancelled fireworks, but will still sell barbecue. LaFayette cancelled Freedom Fest, but will still have a fireworks show.
So here are the abbreviated 2020 Fireworks List:
