QUINCY -- Lovers of fireworks will have three chances to admire community fireworks displays on Saturday, July 4, including in West Quincy, Hannibal and Louisiana, Mo.

The Quincy display will be ignited from West Quincy, Mo., organized by the Quincy Tea Party.

The display, and an accompanying street fair sponsored by Re-Open Adams County, is open to the public, though attendees are asked to wear a mask and to keep a social distance. The street fair, from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., will be along Quincy's riverfront from Broadway to Maine.

The fireworks display is being coordinated by J&M Displays, a nationwide company that specializes in large public firework displays.

Fireworks in Hannibal will begin at 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

The display, which will take place along the city's riverfront, is part of the 65th Annual National Tom Sawyer Days, a multi-day festival sponsored by the Hannibal Jaycees. The fireworks display is open to the public.

In Louisiana, the fireworks will begin at dusk on Saturday along the riverfront. The display is sponsored by the Louisiana Chamber of Commerce. After the fireworks, there will be a lighted boat parade sponsored by Twin Rivers Marina.

Attendees are asked to wear a mask and to practice social distancing.
