List: Where to watch fireworks while social distancing

Fourth of July in 2020 will look different than 2019 did. We will celebrate our country in some way…it might just be a little different.

The 4th of July is typically synonymous with barbecues, parades and fireworks. However, this year, many celebrations have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

WCNC Charlotte will televise the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks spectacular from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday so you can watch it from the comfort of your home.

But if you want to go outside, our partners at Charlotte on the Cheap found a few firework shows still on with social distancing guidelines:
