Hotel Bothwell has announced it will host its annual Thanksgiving night lighting and fireworks display on Thursday, November 26, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.

To ensure the safety and health of event attendees, changes have been made to the annual event's program in light of the national COVID-19 pandemic. Entertainment will not be featured this year and general announcements or remarks will be made from the 2nd floor balcony of the Furnell Landmark Building. Event attendees are encouraged to practice social distancing and to avoid congregating.

To assist in keeping the health and safety of the community a priority, KDRO Hometown Country will simulcast the night's events and fireworks show music on its two stations, 1490 AM and 101.3 FM, and feature DJ Charlie Thomas as the evening's host. Attendees are encouraged to listen live to these stations and watch the fireworks show from their vehicles to encourage social distancing. The event will also be live-streamed form Hotel Bothwell's Facebook page.

The countdown to the light begins at 7:00 p.m. with fireworks synchronized to holiday music immediately following.
