The City of Twin Falls is hosting the 2020 Independence Day fireworks display that will begin at approximately 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 4 at the College of Southern Idaho.
The half-hour firework display is free and provides prime viewing areas from the CSI campus, where spectators of all ages can celebrate Independence Day. The display attracts thousands of spectators from southern Idaho each year, and has become a tradition for both residents and visitors to Twin Falls.
New this year will be social distancing requirements on the CSI campus, and both individuals and families are still encouraged to avoid gatherings of 10 people or more.
“We encourage everyone to watch the show and to celebrate America’s independence as a community,” said Nathan Murray, Economic Development Director.
Residents and visitors are reminded that aerial fireworks are illegal to discharge within the city limits. Only ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks – sold at licensed fireworks stands in Twin Falls – may be discharged from 12 a.m. June 23 until midnight July 5, according to City Code.
Know Before You Go:
• Plan to arrive early. The Police Department will close sections of Falls Avenue, Washington Street North, Cheney Drive and North College Road near the college at 9 p.m. The road closures 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.
• Personal fireworks and alcohol is prohibited on the college campus during the fireworks display.
