Burlington fireworks set for next Friday, July 1


2022 has new location due to ongoing construction at City Park

The City of Burlington’s annual July fireworks show will take place next Friday, July 1. The Independence Day celebration fireworks show will be shot from the Burlington Athletic Stadium, home of the Burlington Sock Puppets baseball team.

Ongoing construction at the traditional location at City Park has significantly reduced both available parking and safe park access points that are necessary for large special events, according to the city. There are two options for seating at this year’s July 1st fireworks show.
Attendees can enjoy the show from within the Burlington Athletic Stadium with ticket purchase or from the Fairchild Soccer Fields located just across the street from the stadium.

Fairchild Soccer is a more relaxed environment where you will need to bring your own blanket or chairs. Restrooms are available near the field, but no additional activities will take place. Parking for this event is available at the Burlington Athletic Stadium, Fairchild Community Center, Fairchild Soccer Fields, and at Glen Hope Baptist Church.

Gates to the ticketed Sock Puppets game and the two public seating locations will open at 6:00 p.m. Fireworks will shoot off upon completion of the baseball game, at the earliest 9:15 p.m. All firework viewing locations are tobacco and drug free. No dogs will be permitted.

If the fireworks must be cancelled due to weather, they will be rescheduled at an event later in the summer.
