Independence Day is on the Fourth of July every year, but in Baker there will be some changes caused by a global pandemic.

The Fourth of July fireworks display is a go, according to Fallon County Commissioner Steve Baldwin.

However, there will be no sponsored events as part of the Independence Day celebration, he said.

“As far as anything by the lake, if people want to play volleyball, go boating or horseshoes they can do that on their own but the county is not going to organize any of that stuff this year because of the  COVID business.”

The display will set up by the baseball complex south of the lake, the commissioner added, noting that the Baker Fire Department will be involved.

“Those guys are experienced … they set them off every year,” Baldwin said.

The fireworks show will start after dusk.

The county has donated for the fireworks display, along with other businesses in the community and county, the commissioner said.
