Thanks to this year’s soggy weather and Boise River flooding, Boise’s Fourth of July fireworks display won’t be held at Ann Morrison Park, according to a city press release.
Instead, the show will light up the sky over Expo Idaho, at 5610 Glenwood St.
Officials said many areas of Ann Morrison are still wet, and drawing large crowds there for a fireworks display could cause serious damage to the park.
Expo Idaho will open at 6 p.m., and entry will be free. The show is scheduled to start at 10:15 p.m. Spectators can buy beer, wine and food on-site. Coolers will be allowed on the grounds during the fireworks display, but outside alcohol will not be permitted. All coolers and handbags will be searched at the event.
The city asks that attendees heed these reminders:
- No personal fireworks or sparklers are allowed
- Consider bringing the following items: water, sunscreen, bug spray, flashlight and a blanket or chair to sit on
- No pets allowed
- No backpacks; as noted above, coolers are allowed
- To help ensure a safe event, handbags will be searched
- No re-entry allowed
- Tailgating will not be permitted
- Smoking is prohibited, except in designated areas
