Independence Day in Great Falls

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

America’s birthday is almost here! As always, Great Falls is ready to celebrate:

4th of July Parade
Wednesday, July 4, at 11 AM, in downtown Great Falls
Free, open to the public; call Ed Brown at 788-0032 for details

Electric City Water Park
Wednesday, July 4, at 1 PM
Regular fees will be in place
Closes at 8 pm

Community Fireworks Display
Tuesday, July 4, 10:15 PM
From West Bank Park; best viewing at Elk’s-Riverside Park.

And if you’re planning to make some noise, please follow the rules:

Fireworks can only be lit on July 2, 3, and 4, between 8 a.m. and midnight. Fireworks can only be used on private property and are not allowed in parks, on streets, cul-de-sacs, or public parking lots.
Unlike previous years, no fireworks will be allowed in Elk’s Riverside Park; people will be asked to return their fireworks to their vehicles or they will be confiscated.
Don’t have your independence day celebration spoiled with hefty fines and upset neighbors. This new law will be enforced.
* 1st Offense ……………………. $100
* 2nd Offense …………………… $200
* 3rd Offense ……………………. $300
* 4th Offense & Greater ……… $1000

Even if I enjoyed setting off fireworks, I’d be real mindful to follow the law – whether you agree with it or not, those fines can put a serious dent in your wallet.
