Watch and Listen: Fireworks Shows

Many fireworks shows have been canceled, but not all of them. WATE has pulled together a list of places you can watch fireworks. The great thing about fireworks is as long as you can find a good place to park you can stay socially distant.

Some places you can still see fireworks shows: Anderson County, Athens, Gatlinburg, Greeneville, Huntsville, Kingsport, Lenoir City, and Pigeon Forge.
