The City of Duluth announced Tuesday that it will cancel the fireworks display that was scheduled over the Labor Day weekend.  City officials made the decision in conjunction with the DECC.

This firework celebration was originally part of the July 4th festival that had been postponed in May due to COVID-19 concerns.

“When we postponed the Independence Day fireworks earlier this year, we had hoped that circumstances would improve to hold the fireworks display over the Labor Day weekend,” Mayor Emily Larson said in a press release. “Last year, we had 10,000 people come to Bayfront to celebrate Independence Day, which doesn’t work within Minnesota’s Stay Safe Phase III plan, which allows for up to 250 people at indoor and outdoor events.”

Francene LaDeaux, who recently moved to Cloquet, said she always enjoys watching Duluth's fireworks with her family. 

"We did watch them on Enger Tower the last time they had them. It was really nice. It's a super good view up there," she said.

No one from the city was available for further comment on Tuesday.
