This afternoon, the City of Elk Grove has released information regarding tomorrow night's firework display.

The firework show, which in the past was held at Elk Grove Regional Park as part of the community's Salute to the Red, White, and Blue, is being held even though that event has been canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The following information conveyed to residents in neighborhoods near the site of the previously undisclosed location said the following:

They canceled the public fireworks at the park because of COVID, yet for this secret 'non-public' event at District56 they are closing the nearby streets 40 minutes in advance?

Is this a subtle nod to come on out and watch the 'non-sanctioned' fireworks anyway? Maybe while they are at it, they can throw in a few foodtrucks and make a real shindig out of it! Politics rolled over the County Public Health Officer like a steamroller.

It’s not a fireworks show it’s a protest so therefore the County Health Officer must allow under 1st amendment rights. It also was Blessed by the Governor so full steam ahead. It seems the Mayor won’t be in attendance as he is tending to a personal matter.
