Mayor of Lancaster Explains Why He WON'T Be Canceling Their Firework Show

Fourth of July firework shows across Southern California have all been canceled this weekend thanks to a countywide ban put in place to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Except for one...

The City of Lancaster says they will not be canceling their Fourth of July plans.

Mayor Rex Paris of Lancaster said that he plans to go ahead with the city's Fourth of July fireworks show, claiming there will be no danger posed as long as people attending wear a mask, or just stay in their cars.

“We absolutely know, wear your mask, wash your hands, don’t touch your face and nobody needs to die. And nobody needs to shut down America,” he told KTLA.

The show is set to start at 9 p.m. on Saturday. The mayor says he will announce the location on social media, about an hour before it starts.
