HONESDALE, WAYNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) In the wake of coronavirus, many firework displays have canceled. However, the Greater Honesdale Partnership is getting very creative with their fireworks display this year, by having a drive-through fireworks show on Friday, June 3rd.

Honesdale’s Independence Day fireworks are a local tradition everyone enjoys. COVID-19 attempted to halt this year’s celebration in Central Park, but local small business owners, Jean and Adam Barziloski, have offered the perfect spot to launch fireworks for the drive-in show,  Adams Hardscape and Excavation.

The drive through firework show is a unique way to keep everyone safe while celebrating our freedom.

You can safely watch the show while parked in Home Depot, Walmart, and Baer Harley Davidson’s parking lots. The show is said to be so spectacular, that you will even be able to watch it from your home in some places.

If you’re traveling into Honesdale for the show, community members like Brian Wilken ask that you check out local businesses in the historic borough as they recover from pandemic closures.

“There are a lot of great restaurants in town. A lot of great stores, of course, Honesdale is a wonderful town to walk around. There’s going to be an icecream train with the Storebridge Line. It gets back to Honesdale at 6, so you’ll have plenty of time to find a nice spot to watch the fireworks.” 

DNH 95.3 FM will be playing synchronized patriotic music set to the fireworks.

Fireworks are set to go off approximately at 9:00 pm. Parking will not be available until after 8:00 pm.

A rain-date is set for Sunday, July 5th.
