LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Despite COVID-19, there will be a fireworks show in downtown Lexington on this 4th of July.

The show begins at 10 p.m., Saturday. It's designed to be seen within a mile radius of the downtown launch pad, which is R.J. Corman's railyard located at the corner of West Main Street and Oliver Lewis Way.

People who can't see the fireworks from their homes are encouraged to drive to an appropriate parking spot and watch from their cars.

"There are lots of places to park downtown. Bring the lawn chairs and sit near your car. Maintain social distance, and wear a mask," Mayor Linda Gorton said.

The Lexington Center Parking lot will open at 8 p.m. Parking is free in that lot. Vehicles may enter through Gate 1 or Gate 2, off High Street. Vehicles will park in every other space until the lot is full.
