CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Fourth of July fireworks will still light up the night sky this year in Albemarle County.
The “save the fireworks” team worked to find a new location to present the fireworks that would normally be set off in McIntire Park in Charlottesville. The group now says Wendell Wood will host this year’s show.
The fireworks will be set off at 9:15 p.m. They will be visible in the southern sky toward Monticello Mountain and Carter Mountain.
People are asked to view the display from their homes or cars to help maintain social distancing.
