No Fireworks Over the Pond
Fireworks are a big part of the 4th of July celebration for many folks.
Unless of course you live on a lake, then fireworks seem to be part of a summer-long celebration not bound by any time of day nor time of year restrictions.
But we digress.
The Croton Fireworks have always been some of the finest around with the magic of pyrotechnics illuminating over the pond.
But this year, like so many other other events that have been derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Croton ‘works will not be lighting up the sky.
From Debbie Wright, Chairperson of the Celebration Committee:
"Just wanted to inform everyone that the Newaygo County 4th of July Celebration Committee has canceled the 2020 fireworks show for Croton Township. The donations that we have received so far will be applied to the 2021 celebration. The committee has discussed a community “stay home, stay safe” celebration. More to come on that as we work out the plans."
And so it goes

I can see canceling the festivities on the causeway because of social distancing but do the fireworks take a lot of people to be close. I know nothing about the pyrotechnics so I’m truly just asking. Maybe just the fireworks could still be done as a celebration of all we have been through and our wonderful country.

I think the other consideration is all of the other fireworks that have been cancelled around the area for that weekend, Croton can’t handle an influx of folks if it’s the only option. A possible solution is for the local communities to reschedule on different weekends throughout the mid to late summer?
