While many of the health restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have been eased around Southern California, most large events have been canceled to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Unfortunately, that includes a lot of our favorite summer activities - including the many fireworks shows hosted across the Southland every year. For example, the two most popular fireworks celebrations around Southern California have decided to go virtual, or been canceled altogether.
