Waukesha's July 4 fireworks event relocated to Lowell Park
WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The city of Waukesha announced the city's July 4 fireworks display has been relocated from the Waukesha Expo Center to Lowell Park due to cost and safety concerns related to the proximity of fireworks to the airport.
The event will take place on Monday, July 4, at 9:30 p.m.
“As the airport has expanded over the years, we have made adjustments to allowable shell sizes and launch locations in efforts to continue safely conducting fireworks displays at this location,” said City of Waukesha Fire Chief, Steve Howard. “After last year’s display, I felt it necessary to re-evaluate the use of this site for future fireworks displays. It appears that Lowell Park is a viable alternate site within the City.”
According to a news release, the festivities will also include a Neighborhood Beer Garden featuring music and food options.
“We are excited to offer the experience of the July4th fireworks in Lowell Park,” said special event coordinator, Joanna Adamicki. “The topography of the park lends itself to a great fireworks experience for those in attendance and we are looking forward to offering the show, coupled with our successful Neighborhood Beer Gardens.”
