4th of July Fireworks Show in Charlottesville

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - There were 4th of July fireworks in Charlottesville, launched from Wendell Wood’s ridgeline property on Carter Mountain, not far from Monticello.

Bob Schotta helped coordinate the show. He says people deserve something to enjoy on Independence Day after all the world has endured.

“A handful of other local community folks stepped up and said, ‘let’s do this, lets raise the money.’ It’s not the perfect time, things aren’t perfect, but things never have been perfect in America so let’s just do this as a tradition. It’s a great tradition in Charlottesville and around the U.S. and you know people are coming together to get this done,” he said.
