The City of Nicholson will not have a fireworks celebration in July this year. Instead, the city will have a Sept. 4 Fireworks Celebration. The rain date will be Sept. 11.

At the start of the year, city leaders were unsure of what the mandates would be this summer related to the pandemic, so the decision was made to combine the May Daisy Festival and July Independence Celebration into one event that would be held in September.

The Sept. 4 event will include live music by Whisper Whitlock, fireworks and vendors.
