Fourth of July in Paradise

According to the Town of Paradise, "The Town is following all current public health guidelines COVID-19, and we that means adapting our special events. We are exploring options for new events and looking at ways we can offer resident favorites - so that we're still together while we are physical distancing and supporting the public health requirements." And has yet to post anything relating to celebrating the 4th of July. 

Therefore it's safe to say they most likely won't be having any sort of firework celebration.
