The City of Bennettsville's annual Independence Day Fireworks show will go on as planned next Saturday, June 27 at Lake Paul Wallace. The 20-minute show will begin at 9:30.
"We believe that our community deserves to have this celebration. Of course, there have to be restrictions in place to enforce social distancing but we have made accommodations that will allow us to continue this tradition," said Elisabeth McNiel, the director of Tourism, Parks and Recreation for the city.
They are calling this year's show "drive-in fireworks."
"Unlike previous years, there won't be activities on the beach or a band to entertain the crowd prior to the show. Everyone will be asked to stay in or at their vehicles to watch the fireworks," she said.
To enhance viewing from other locations, the show's soundtrack will be broadcast on a low-power FM station.
