Recommended:

  • Attend the Rec’s Independence Day Celebration at the golf course on July 6th, listen to great music by Big Time Grain Co, Mae Estes, and Parmalee, and watch the professional fireworks show.
  • Use glow sticks for kids and colored lights in place of sparklers.
  • Spend time with friends and family.
  • Celebrate safely.
  • Be mindful of neighbors, seniors, pets, and individuals with PTSD or similar trauma.
  • Consider donating to a pet shelter as they are often overwhelmed this time of year.
  • Have a bucket of water on hand to extinguish fireworks and in case of fire.

Not recommended:

  • Never disrupt traffic flow while setting off fireworks.
  • Don’t set fireworks off in your hands.
  • Monitor sparkler use carefully — they can cause third degree burns.
  • Bottle rockets and similar flying fireworks are against city code.
  • Never aim fireworks at a building, person, vehicle, or animal.
  • Under no conditions should you ever dispose of fireworks in the trash without soaking them first.
