Fireworks over O’Fallon set for July 5

O’FALLON  The Second Annual Fireworks Over O’Fallon will be held on Sunday, July 5, 2020 at dusk (approximately 8:30 p.m.). The fireworks will be launched near the west entrance of the O’Fallon Family Sports Park.

“Last year, we brought back fireworks for the first time in thirty years. Each year, we will continue to make them bigger and better!” said Mayor Herb Roach. “Members of the OTHS Band may be going around to see if people enjoying fireworks in the park would like to donate toward their trip to the Rose Bowl Parade, any contributions are greatly appreciated.  I hope that all of you will join us in celebrating the holiday and enjoying the community.”

Spectators are asked to view the show from safe and legal parking areas. All paved parking lots in the Family Sports Park and Hesse Park will be open. There will be no parking in the grass or side of the roadways in the Sports Park.
