Fireworks in Rutherford for the Fourth

The City of Smyrna may have cancelled the Fourth of July events, but Murfreesboro and La Vergne are going forward.

So many fireworks events have ben cancelled due to corona virus concerns, it's refreshing to see that some are still going on with safe measures in place.
    Murfreesboro will present its annual July 4th fireworks display from the parking lot at Medical Center Parkway near Fire Station 4.
    "Because we didn't need an area for a large gathering, the new location is ideal," says Nate Williams, director of Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department. "Many of the businesses in the area have indicated their parking lots would be available if families want to come and watch the show," he adds.
    The Murfreesboro display is set to start at 9 p.m. The community can bring picnic baskets, lawn chairs and blankets in order to view the show; WGNS will broadcast music to accompany the spectacle which will also be televised on Nashville's WKRN Channel 2.
    The City of La Vergne's fireworks show will be at Veteran's Memorial Park at 115 Floyd Mayfield Drive beginning at 6 p.m. with a live music performance. Fireworks will begin when it gets dark. The park's football field will be open for firework's viewing. The fireworks show will also be available on the La Vergne City Hall Facebook page and on local channel 3.
