City of Toledo no Fourth of July fireworks due to supply issues

The city center event was also canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.

TOLEDO, Ohio – The city of Toledo will not be hosting fireworks on July 4th for the second year in a row.

A city spokesman confirmed to WTOL on Thursday that the event had been canceled this year due to supply chain bottlenecks. Last year’s spectacle was canceled due to COVID-19.

“We have no fireworks this year,” said city spokesman Ignazio Messina in a statement. “We don’t think there will be a big fireworks display in any city this year because COVID has disrupted the supply chain, making a big presentation impossible. We wanted to do it, but the suppliers said it wasn’t possible. ”

WTOL will learn more about this story as it develops.
