Tuscaloosa’s Fourth of July Celebration Will Look a Little Different This Year

In the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s July Fourth celebrations in Tuscaloosa won’t be the same as in years past. That said, residents will still be able to enjoy watching fireworks on Independence Day.

The city of Tuscaloosa will put on a firework display on Saturday, July 4, at 9 p.m. The show, which will be viewable from downtown Tuscaloosa, will last for approximately 20 minutes. Limited free parking will be available at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater and the Downtown Intermodal Facility parking deck. 

The City is incredibly excited to be able to celebrate the 4th of July this year with fireworks at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater,” said Richard Rush, communications director for the city. We hate that the normal programming cannot occur, but as we continually look for innovative ways to meet the unique needs brought on by Covid-19, we are excited to partner with local radio stations to ensure social distancing while continuing to be able to celebrate this occasion with patriotic music.”

Music to accompany the fireworks will play life on Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa radio stations, including 95.3, 92.9, and 101.7 FM.

There will not be any city-hosted Celebration on the River activities, other than the fireworks. Additionally, the Amphitheater won’t be open for viewing the fireworks.

City officials encourage all community members to follow the Alabama Department of Public Health’s social distancing, face covering, and hand-washing recommendations while viewing the fireworks.  
For questions about the fireworks, call Tuscaloosa 311.
