Around Town

Fourth of July Fireworks: 2020 Home Edition     The City of Brighton is set to host the Fourth of July Fireworks: 2020 Home Edition on July 4 at dusk.

The community is encouraged to watch the fireworks from the comfort of their front/backyards looking towards East Brighton for the fireworks show (this year’s display won’t be located at Carmichael Park). The show will also be broadcast on the City’s KBRI-8 channel (Comcast 8 and 881), the City’s website, and on the City’s Facebook page.
