The city commission was considering displaying the fireworks from the local airport and having guests watch from a sports complex nearby.

On Tuesday, the city commission decided to return to Riverside Park for the show.

Back in 2019, food trucks were parked along Riverside Drive and live music was played for the event.

The fireworks show started at 9:15 p.m. for the 2019 event.
