PITTSBURGH — Fourth of July fireworks are a big tradition in western Pennsylvania, but because of the coronavirus, many fireworks displays and celebrations were canceled.
The city of Pittsburgh canceled its celebration at Point State Park. However, Channel 11 News will still bring Fourth fireworks to your television. Our annual Flashes of Freedom Fireworks show will air at 9 p.m. on Saturday. We’ll thank the heroes of 2020 and re-air last year’s downtown fireworks. You can watch on Channel 11 and in our WPXI Now streaming apps.
If you’d rather attend fireworks in person, below is a list of the shows still happening this weekend.
