I've got mixed feelings regarding the BB Rotary Club's plans to host their 4th of July fireworks event this year. On the one hand, it would be good for local businesses. On the other hand, a surge of 1000's of visitors up here (on a Saturday night, no less), could certainly place our community at risk. Not only would the Valley risk increased COVID-19 exposure, but due to social distancing, numerous governmental resources are currently spread thin. Does anyone else feel uncomfortable about BB Rotary Club moving ahead with this year's fireworks event?

I thought I remember hearing they had moved it out to September? But my memory's not what it used to be...

September sounds like a much more responsible time to hold the event. And with everything else in life already jumbled around, it doesn't seem all that odd.

I did a quick google search and turned up nothing so maybe what I'm remembering is what SCM ALERT said - the contract gives them the flexibility to move it out to September?

City update last night stated that 4th of July is now back on the books, at least at this time. I wasn't happy about memorial weekend, certainly not on board with the 4th En Mass. We sacrificed WAY to much over the last 2.5 months to just throw up our hands and say, what ever happens happens. Complete and utter insanity and BS.

I kept hearing others say September >?< so I was linking to the 'as late as' Oct timeframe allowed.

But yeah, still on for the normal 4th of July.

In Arrowhead, ALA but this out yesterday:

"Due to the San Bernardino County interpretation of State COVID-19 restrictions for large gatherings, the County is prohibiting fireworks shows that involve large gatherings in parks or similar venues. Unfortunately, this means the ALA Fireworks Spectacular must be postponed. We have tentatively rescheduled the show for Sunday, September 6 th of Labor Day weekend."

I started out with nothing and I still have most of it!

Pubished yesterday by San Bernardino County (Covid-19 update 5/29/2020:

"With the Fourth of July on the horizon, we want everyone to know that public fireworks displays can still take place. But they can only be viewed from cars and private yards -- we are not yet ready for gatherings in parks and on athletic fields."

We have had 4th of July practice going on for weeks. Actually had someone up the street shot off a professional type one last week. And we live next to an open field.

There's always fireworks going on down there, year-round. I was down last weekend in HB and it was crazy already!

On a bright note, looking up to sky on Saturday night, we get lunar eclipse and should be clear for great star gazing. Kinda wish I had a telescope

I think the City made the right decision to protect the community we all love. It will be a different 4th of July but we live in a different world. Not for me, but for my kids and grandkids I wish and pray for a better world.
