This is a welcome surprise for many in mid-Michigan who have been hearing nothing but cancellations for the last few weeks.

The problem with trying to put together a huge fireworks display during a pandemic, is that many of the normal financial backers are not able to help. The Saginaw Fireworks organizers are hoping that public donations will help to cover the cost of the show. The press release made that very clear.

Please keep in mind that all donations are tax deductible. No donation is too small, and every dollar is appreciated.

I think it should be said that this is far from a 100% lock to happen. With the financial issues, and the chance of the Coronavirus pandemic getting worse, there are so many reasons that the fireworks could be called off.

I do think that fireworks are one of the few things that can actually happen with large crowds though, and still maintain some sort of social distancing. The vibe would be completely different obviously, because there could be no carnival or kids playing together before, during and after the fireworks.

It's still hard to wrap my head around how many different things factor into every decision now. I hope that organizers are able to get the funds needed, and have a successful show, all while keeping everyone safe.
