Social distancing guidelines followed at Lexington fireworks show
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Around the state, Fourth of July festivities looked different this year.
Many cities canceled their fireworks show because of the pandemic. Lexington also canceled most of its Independence Day festival, but the fireworks show went on.
It took place once again over the RJ Corman Rail Yard at Main Street and Oliver Lewis Way.
The city encouraged people to watched the show from their cars so they could social distance.
The city center parking garage was open, and cars were allowed to park in every other parking space.
People out watching fireworks say it didn’t feel much different.
“It’s nice to do something that feels kind of almost normal, I know was we’ve all been very mindful of staying healthy at home and working,” Geri Grigsby said. “I feel lucky that I’ve been able to telecommute for the most part so being able to come outside and enjoy something that we’ve done in the past, it’s really good.”
We streamed the fireworks show live with a birds-eye view of the show with a camera on top of the Fifth Third building in downtown Lexington:
