Dear Citizens and Community,
                We have decided to move forward with the fireworks show for 2020. The show will continue as planned with a balloon glow scheduled for 8:30pm. With these 2          events, a large footprint of the area known as the West Gate First Monday parking will be occupied. Due to this needed space, there will be limited access and                    parking available at this location for patrons. We still want to encourage you all to come out and enjoy the show, but you will want to seek out other vantage points for          viewing.
                 There is not a dedicated start time for the fireworks, as we always attempt to start at optimal darkness that provides for the best quality show. However, we do            expect it to begin between 9:15-9:30pm. Remember, our local radio station KWJB The Bee syncs music with the show on 95.1FM or 1510AM.
                  Know that we, the City of Canton, look forward to providing this display and do it for all our community's enjoyment! Please take notice of this announcement              and search for a wonderful location to watch. Enjoy the show and Happy 4th of July!
