The Coronavirus pandemic has thrown a wrench in just about everyone’s plans. Most predicted the trouble would be over by now, but not everyone is willing to return to life as usual before the pandemic began. As temperatures rise, you’re probably wondering if there will be any public Independence Day celebrations this year or not. Read on to learn more about the current plans for July 2020.
Will There Be Fireworks July 4th, 2020 in Pocatello, ID?
As of the time of this writing, there is no guarantee people will be able to attend a big fireworks show in person like they have in the past. Most likely, the fireworks show will be best accessed through local television broadcasts. It’s not the same experience, of course, but some may still be able to see the display from a distance from their own property.
Will There Be a July 4th Parade in Pocatello, ID?
Just like with a fireworks display, officials have not been in favor of mass gatherings, so a parade may be possible if it is televised and altered for social distance guidelines. This will likely change the entire nature of the parade, but it still may make it possible to celebrate, even if everyone can only enjoy it from their homes.
Are Other Cities Having 4th of July Events?
The City of Idaho Falls will not be holding its Independence Day parade because of concerns related to the pandemic. Other communities may do the same, meaning that events in Pocatello may draw an unexpected amount of traffic and present entirely different issues. Officials inside and outside of Pocatello may update their plans every few days, so be aware that anything written here may change according to local policy.
Will Other Summer Events Be Shut Down in Pocatello, ID?
Since many public movie screenings, concerts and other events have already been postponed or outright canceled, the likelihood is high that more events will be canceled or altered to accommodate the current health concerns.
