The annual Fourth of July firework celebration – Star Storm – at Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria will take place this year, but there are some major changes.

Weather permitting, the firework show will take place on Saturday, July 4, starting around 10 p.m.

However, due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, there will be no shuttle service to the resort and no outside guests will be allowed on the Arrowwood property, according to Shari Prause, director of sales and marketing at Arrowwood.

She said that only resort guests will be allowed on the property.

However, parking will be available in the stables parking lot for people to stay in their vehicle to watch the show.


People can still watch by boat, she noted in the press release.

Star Storm this year will be aired live on the Arrowwood Resort Facebook page for people to watch from the comfort of their own home. And just like in the past, Star Storm will continue to have music, which will be broadcast on KIKV-FM 100.7.

Reservations can be made at Arrowwood’s Deck Bar, but there will be limited seating. Prause said there will be a $20 per hour charge per table, with that cover charge being donated to Helping Hands of Alexandria.

Prause said there are numerous sponsors for this year’s Star Storm 2020 and that it wouldn’t be possible without them.
