Lakewood Fireworks Show Causes a Stir On Social Media

Lakewood's virtual tree lighting and fireworks show caused confusion and criticism from the public.

What the hell just happened:

The City of Lakewood purchased fireworks for the annual Fourth of July show. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the city postponed the show and later merge the fireworks with its tree lighting ceremony as a dual event.

  • According to the city's website, the city held "three coordinated aerial fireworks shows" in different parts of Lakewood at the same time.

  • The sound of fireworks could be heard for miles, and Lakewood was trending on Twitter for hours.
