Burlington July 4th Fireworks Moved to Athletic Stadium this Year
The City of Burlington will once again celebrate our nation’s independence with a fireworks display, however, the location of that celebration is different this year. City officials have announced that the fireworks will take place at the Burlington Athletic Stadium, not at City Park. The move was made as construction continues on a new carousel house at City Park. The celebration will be this Friday, July 2, and the launch of the first fireworks will take place after the conclusion of the Burlington Sock Puppets game on Friday. That start time is expected to be about 9:15 p.m., but could be later, depending on the outcome of the baseball game. To watch from inside the stadium, you will need to buy a ticket to the game. The fireworks can be watched for free from Fairchild Park, as well as the Fairchild soccer fields.
