With the extra dry conditions, please be very careful this year if you plan on launching any fireworks. If you are looking to watch a cool firework display on the 4th of July, below is a list of some local Utah displays.
Sugar House Fireworks
Two years ago, the Sugar House Fireworks show was in danger of never seeing the night sky again. But now, despite the odds, not only is the show back — thanks to Scott Workman and many sponsors like KSL — it seems it will survive the blazing summer.
The Sugar House Fireworks show will take place at the Sugar House Park this Fourth of July with a variety of entertainment beginning with inflatables for kids and musical performances from 4 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Vendors will be there to sell various food items like tacos, funnel cakes, pizza and more.
These events will be followed by the fireworks display by Vortex Fireworks, which will begin around 10 p.m.
Freedom Festival's Stadium of Fire
Year after year, the most popular Fourth of July celebration in Utah has to be the Stadium of Fire. And this year is no exception.
BYU's Lavell Edwards Stadium will light up again in Provo with performances, planes and patriots, and as expected, a fireworks show unlike any other. This year it will feature the musical talents of the Beach Boys, who are celebrating their 50th Anniversary Tour, as well as 2011 American Idol winner Scott McCreery.
Four F-16s from Hill Air Force Base will soar above LaVell Edwards Stadium, as it has done on the Fourth of July for nearly 20 years.
Also taking place the morning of the Fourth is the Grand Parade, taking over Provo at 9 a.m., beginning at 960 North University Avenue, traveling southeast. The festival will also consist of the Freedom Run for those who want to brave the blistering heat for the 10K, 5K or the Mayor's one mile Fun Run, all beginning at 7 a.m.
Spring Mobile Park with the Salt Lake Bees
The Salt Lake Bees will take on the Tacoma Raniers on the Fourth this year, but it's almost impossible to watch America's favorite pastime on the Fourth of July without a little fireworks. The Spring Mobile Park has you covered with its own show at the end of the game presented by Larry H. Miller Chevrolet Murray, win or lose.
The City of St. George has promised the largest fireworks show in the history of Southern Utah. A 21-minute show, with choreographed fireworks shooting from four different locations set to music that can be seen from pretty much anywhere in the city? Sounds pretty big to us.
Brigham City's Fourth of July Celebration
Brigham City's Fourth of July Celebration at Pioneer Park is an entire day filled with games in the park, baseball, and food to beat the heat. But as soon as sun goes down, the fireworks go up, presented by the Brigham City Fire Department.
