In consideration of social distancing guidelines and mass gathering limits, the City of Joplin and Missouri Southern State University have modified the 2020 Independence Day Celebration. This year’s event will be a fireworks-only show on Saturday, July 4th at 9:45 p.m. The fireworks will be set off on the eastern side of the Missouri Southern State University campus.

Area residents are welcome to watch the display from their vehicle from designated MSSU parking lots. The stadium and amenities will be closed to the public.

The fireworks show will start at 9:45pm and will last approximately 20 minutes. A warning shot will be blasted 10 minutes before the show begins.

The show will be set to music, which visitors can tune into 88.7 KXMS to experience. The entirety of the fireworks celebration will be broadcast live on KGCS TV Channel 21 and on Missouri Southern’s Facebook page.
