West Palm Beach Mayor urges residents to celebrate Fourth of July safely

Mayor Keith James spoke Thursday morning about how Independence Day is a time to celebrate, but it’s also a time to stay safe with the spike in COVID-19 cases in Florida.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Fourth of July celebrations will look a little different this year.

West Palm Beach won’t be hosting its traditional “4th on Flagler” event. However, Mayor James said he’s launching a new initiative for this weekend called “DIY 4th of July,” which encourages people to enjoy and host their own celebrations this weekend in a safe manner.

The city of West Palm Beach plans to celebrate by setting off fireworks at two undisclosed locations starting at 9 p.m. on Saturday.
