The Rhinelander Common Council decided at its last meeting to cancel the Independence Day parade downtown because of the coronavirus outbreak, but decided to proceed with the annual fireworks show at Hodag Park. Left open was the date for the show.

The City announced Wednesday the fireworks show will be held on Saturday, July 4 at dusk. It originally had been planned for a day earlier. 

City officials ask the public to use safe practices during the fireworks show, including physical distancing by six feet, frequent handwashing and utilizing face coverings. They say information about reopening Hodag Park Beach will be released later.

Elsewhere, Pioneer Park Historical Complex is open Tuesday through Sunday. City outdoor playground equipment, parks and the BMX course have reopened with best practices recommended. More information is on the City of Rhinelanderwebsite.
