Fourth of July celebrations may look a bit different this year as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has continued to alter various facets of everyday life throughout 2020, but those hoping to see a fireworks display this Independence Day are in luck thanks to PBS' "A Capitol Fourth." The annual special has been entertaining viewers for over four decades. Here's how and when you watch it from the safety of your own home and what to expect from the upcoming program.

PBS has announced that "A Capitol Fourth" will feature a variety of musical acts as they come together to celebrate the holiday. "Honey, I'm Good" singer Andy Grammer, Motown group The Temptations, and "American Idol" alum Lauren Alaina are just a few of the musicians that will entertain those who tune in to watch the PBS show. Additionally, country singers Trace Adkins and Brantley Gilbert are slated to appear. A full list of the 2020 performers can be viewed here.

The John Stamos and Vanessa Williams-hosted show will also feature a tribute to the frontline workers who have been actively working to curb the spread of COVID-19. The show will close with a fireworks show and Tchaikovsky’s "1812 Overture."

As for the fireworks themselves, PBS states that the display will be filmed using 20 cameras that are positioned around Washington, D.C., which will ensure that viewers are "front and center for the greatest display of fireworks in the nation."

However, the coronavirus pandemic will affect certain parts of the broadcast. The network has confirmed that going against tradition, the event will not be held on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Additionally, the performances will all be pre-tapped in order to practice proper social distancing guidelines and safety measures.

Those who are hoping to watch "A Capitol Fourth" for themselves can do so in a variety of ways. Beginning at 8 p.m. EDT on Saturday and running until 9:30 p.m., the show will be broadcast on PBS. Check your local listings for more information about the time and airdate specific to your location.

A live stream of the program will also be available through Facebook, YouTube, and the PBS website, while watching the show via Video on Demand will also be available from July 4-18.

Additionally, the show is set to air on the American Forces Network, which will allow troops serving around the world to partake in the celebration. NPR listeners will be also able to enjoy the music through NPR member stations nationwide.

"A Capitol Fourth" will air Saturday at 8 p.m. EDT on PBS.
