UPDATED FOR 2020
East Point’s annual Salute to the Red, White and Blue Independence Day fireworks have been canceled for 2020.
Instead, the city is offering a FREE virtual fireworks celebration that uses augmented reality via a smartphone app.
From the website:
Simply download this free app on your smartphone or tablet and on July 4th between 9pm-midnight, hold the device at face-level while pointing it towards the sky to witness a stunning fireworks show using augmented reality! The show will last approximately 10-12 minutes and users can watch the show as many times as they want during that time frame by simply re-opening the app. Users can also use the app beginning as early as June 11th to experience other augmented reality displays prior to July 4th. For more information, download the flyer (click the image) and visit www.holopundits.com
