Brainerd's July 4th Fireworks

Due to the ongoing limitations on gathering sizes as well as the construction at the Brainerd High School site, the availability to watch the fireworks from the hill and the lower site will not be available to us this year.  Community Action will be shooting this year’s fireworks off from a slightly different location.  If you have traditionally viewed them from locations other than the High School “bowl” you will have no problem seeing them again this year.  Start time 10:15pm on the evening of the 4th.
