Minneapolis Red, White and Boom fireworks canceled again this year


MINNEAPOLIS– You won’t see fireworks over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis on July 4 this year.

The city says its Red, White and Boom show will not take place in 2022 “due to construction at Father Hennepin Park and lack of staff.”

Instead, the park board will host four Independence Day celebrations at four locations across the city: Lake Harriet from 10:30 a.m. to noon, Nokomis Lake and Victory Park from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and Logan Park from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. pm

This is the third year in a row that Minneapolis’ flagship fireworks display has been canceled.

The city still plans to hold the Aquatennial fireworks display in July, according to the event’s website. UKTN News Minnesota plans to air both the Aquatennial torchlight parade and the fireworks show.
