Loveland’s annual Independence Day Celebration has been canceled for this year amid the coronavirus pandemic.  City Manager David Kennedy stated that this decision was made “out of health concerns for our residents and is consistent with public health concerns over holding large attendance events.”

Despite the cancellation of the festival, a fireworks show will go on.  The City of Loveland has teamed up with Symmes Township and Rozzi Famous Fireworks to hold two simultaneous, park and watch, fireworks shows on Saturday, July 4.  Loveland Mayor Kathy Bailey said she “was disappointed that Loveland was not able to celebrate Independence Day with our traditional parade, concert, and other downtown festivities but hoped the firework shows would bring a sense of pride to our communities.” Symmes Township Administrator, Kimberly Lapensee stated that “Symmes Township is so excited to partner with the City of Loveland to celebrate the 4th of July while keeping our community safe.

Fireworks will be set off at Boike Park and Symmes Park on Saturday, July 4.  Residents who live near the parks are asked to stay home to enjoy the show.  Others may watch from their cars, remaining socially distant, at Phillips Park, Loveland High School, Home of the Brave Park, church parking lots, and in surrounding subdivisions to watch the fireworks shows.  Once times and locations are finalized, another press release will be issued showing all available locations to park and watch the fireworks safely.
