Many communities have canceled their Fourth of July celebrations because of the pandemic, but Aransas Pass went ahead with its celebration Thursday night.

A fireworks show lit up the sky with a crowd on hand -- but the public was asked to social distance or watch from their cars.

People KRIS 6 News spoke with said they felt safe.

“We came down from Fort Worth,” said Cliff Bowman. “And you know, they canceled it everywhere but here. We're set together, but everyone else is away from us so it's all good.”

“I felt pretty safe,” said Aransas Pass resident Maria Monreal. “We're all distant. We are having a good time out here. I feel safe here in Aransas Pass.”

Although Corpus Christi has postponed its fireworks show scheduled for Saturday night, Mayor Joe McComb has promised to reschedule it for a later date.
