There will be plenty of fireworks this year for Independence Day.

The Yukon City Council approved the purchase of fireworks for the 2020 Freedom Fest public display.

The July 4 celebration had been in doubt due to the pandemic, but plans have been made to have the festival, with some changes this year due to COVID-19.

The city council approved a contract Tuesday night with ARC Pyrotechnics Inc. to perform two fireworks shows. The shows will be on July 3 and on July 4. The cost for the two shows is $39,900.

The city council approved the purchases with the option to renew their contract with the company for two more years. The vote was unanimous in favor of the purchase.
