RICHMOND, Va. -- WTVR CBS 6 is partnering with the Richmond Flying Squirrels and the City of Richmond to broadcast a fireworks show at The Diamond on Saturday, July 4.

CBS 6 will televise the event with a special live broadcast from 9-10 p.m. The fireworks show at The Diamond is scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m.

“Although we are unable to gather for our traditional Fourth of July game at The Diamond, we are excited to partner with the City of Richmond and CBS 6 to bring fireworks to your TV screen,” Flying Squirrels VP & COO Todd “Parney” Parnell said. “While different than past years, we can still celebrate and create new memories together while watching safely through our televisions.”

The broadcast is presented by the Virginia Lottery.

“Fourth of July at The Diamond is a Richmond tradition,” CBS 6 General Manager Stephen Hayes said. “CBS 6 looks forward to televising the fireworks and celebrating Independence Day with our Central Virginia community.”

Officials with the Flying Squirrels says details about potential on-site viewing of fireworks will be released at a later date if phase restrictions in the City of Richmond change before the event.
