The City of Snoqualmie announced yesterday evening that the annual 4th of July community fireworks display has been postponed.
According to the city announcement, “The Red, White & Boom fireworks display has provided an evening of fun for all ages each July 4th since 2016. This year, due to the coronavirus and COVID-19, it has been postponed, but not cancelled.”
The popular, donation-funded event is put on by Serve Snoqualmie – the community service division of Church on the Ridge – and hosted at Snoqualmie Community Park.
Church on the Ridge announced the postponement on Facebook on Friday, May 15th, saying, “Due to COVID-19, we will be postponing the 2020 show. We expect to reveal a revised date shortly. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support.”
Serve Snoqualmie Red, White and Boom event planner Jeff Mihal stated, “We are under contract with a pyrotechnic as we speak and a date will be announced soon.”
“The Red, White and Boom fireworks show is one of our favorite events,” said Mayor Matt Larson. “It provides a safe and fun evening of entertainment that serves to bring the community together. Sadly, coming safely together is simply not possible this July 4th. We all look forward to celebrating this much-needed event later this year when it is safe to do so. Thank you, Serve Snoqualmie!”
The large community fireworks display launched in 2016 after the city banned fireworks following a devastating, firework-caused house fire in 2014.
