Nashville's July 4th reimagined: Fireworks, but no spectators

May 20, 2020


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Nashville’s 4th of July celebration is still on, but it won’t look anything like what the mid-state’s come to expect.

In a press statement sent Tuesday, the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. says the fireworks will go off as usual, but the public won’t be allowed to attend due to social distancing concerns.

The riverfront area will be closed to discourage spectators. Instead, the show will be televised by WTVF, channel five.

Country great Brad Paisley was set to headline the event. He’s now agreed to headline the 2021 celebration instead.

The event has also been repurposed to serve as a tribute to honor “healthcare heroes, first responders and frontline workers.”
