Lansing fireworks show slated for July 4

June 23, 2011

The city of Lansing will present its 11th annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration on Monday, July 4, at Kenneth W. Bernard Community Park.

The city urges those attending to arrive no later than 9 p.m. so that everyone can be seated and comfortable prior to the start of the show. Traffic arriving at the park after 9 p.m. cannot be guaranteed a decent location for viewing the fireworks, which will start at dusk (around 9:30 p.m.), weather permitting.

Mayor Kenneth W. Bernard will introduce the fireworks display, which is coordinated by Lansing pyrotechnician Jamie Miller. The Lansing Historical Society will sell soft drinks and water.

Spectators are encouraged to bring chairs and view the show from the park, which is about 2.5 miles west of Main Street on 4-H Road.

The city suggests those attending consider carpooling to the event, as parking is limited. ADA parking will be available.

In case of inclement weather, visit the city’s website, LGTV-Ch. 2 (for Time Warner subscribers), the city’s Facebook page or Twitter page for up-to-date event information. If inclement weather is approaching, the fireworks display time could be altered depending on the projected weather forecast.

The city also reminds those planning to attend that private fireworks cannot discharged within the event venue or within 500 feet of the perimeter of the display setup area.
