orig story:

We will soon know if the City of Mobile will move forward with its plans for Fourth of July fireworks.

There's no word yet if the traditional fireworks on the 4th will light up the night sky here.

Tuesday’s Mobile city council meeting has on its agenda to authorize a contract of $30,000 worth of pyrotechnics for its 4th of July fireworks display.

Last year it was held at Cooper Riverside Park after years of holding it at the Battleship.

We anticipate the show will go on, but there's no official word. But that’s not the case everywhere on the Gulf Coast.

Gulf Shores and Saraland cancelled their shows because of health concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Wharf's show is still on, but guests are required to stay socially distant.

Daphne's show will also go on as planned.

OWA in Foley added a second show with fireworks July 3rd and 4th.

A private company stepped in to support Dauphin Island's show.

The Mobile event routinely draws in thousands of spectators on the water and along the river.

We hope to get an official answer after the city council meeting Tuesday.
