The City of Twin Falls will host the 2021 Independence Day fireworks display that will begin at approximately 10 p.m. Sunday, July 4 at the College of Southern Idaho. The fireworks display is free and provides prime viewing areas for all ages from the college campus.
The City of Twin Falls is sponsoring and hosting the annual event that has become an annual tradition for residents and visitors. The show will be about 20 minutes and is expected to be Twin Falls’ largest display in eight years.
“We want it to be something special to remember our nation’s independence and to bring our community together after a difficult year,” said Suzanne Hawkins, Twin Falls City Mayor. “We hope everyone can come out and enjoy the evening together.”
The City is also encouraging residents to attend the show rather than purchase their own fireworks. Residents may purchase ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks from inspected fireworks stand in the City of Twin Falls, and they may be discharge from 8 a.m. until midnight between June 23 through July 5.
Aerial fireworks are prohibited from being discharged inside the City limits. Dispatchers and law enforcement respond to numerous complaints from residents about aerial fireworks, and in prior years they have resulted in damaged property, lost pets, and neighbor disputes. Please be a good neighbor by not discharging aerial firework and only discharging ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks during the allowed timeframe.
Due to vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the area of the Independence Day display, the City of Twin Falls asks the following:
- Please plan on arriving early. The Police Department will close North College Road from Fillmore Street to Washington Street at 9 p.m. The road will remain closed until the fireworks display has ended. The road closure ensure the safety of pedestrians in the area.
- Please be patient. It may take several minutes for police to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic to and from the college campus safely. Please plan for delays and understand that safety is our officers’ primary concern.
- During fireworks displays in previous years, traffic collisions have occurred as a result of impaired drivers. The area surrounding the college will be heavily patrolled and all drivers suspected of driving under the influence will be arrested. Do not drink and drive.
- Personal fireworks and alcohol are prohibited on the college campus during the fireworks display.
