Moraine has joined the list of cities canceling Fourth of July fireworks festivities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The city has been holding its Independence Day Star Spangled Boom at Wax Park, but announced this year’s event will not be held.
Dayton, Fairborn and Kettering had earlier said they will also not put on fireworks events due to the coronavirus restrictions.
Fireworks displays are still planned in Huber Heights, Lebanon, Springboro and Xenia, officials have said. But Lebanon will cancel its Independence Day activities at Colonial Park, according to the city.
Beavercreek officials have said the city has not made a decision on its fireworks. The city’s website continues to provide information on a “Happy 40th Birthday, Beavercreek!” themed event.
