Fireworks will thunder and thrill in Sylva at dark (about 9:30 p.m.) Saturday, July 4. The show from Sunrise Park will be visible throughout downtown and the immediate surrounding areas. The fireworks team will shoot a warning shot about 9:15 p.m. so people can see if their viewing spot is good, Chamber Director Julie Donaldson said. The fireworks will last 17 minutes. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, there will not be any activities at Bridge Park. The show is organized by the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce. Concerts on the Creek has been postponed.
