[ARCHIVED] City of Twin Falls Independence Day Fireworks Show at College of Southern Idaho

City Fireworks Display

The annual City of Twin Falls Independence Day Fireworks display will begin at 10:15 p.m. Monday, July 4 at the College of Southern Idaho. The City sponsored event is free and provides great viewing for all ages from the college campus. Live music will be hosted near the northeast entrance to the campus.

The event, which is sponsored by the City of Twin Falls and hosted by the College of Southern Idaho, is an annual tradition for residents and visitors that provides about 20 minutes of uninterrupted fireworks.

“The City of Twin Falls Independence Day Fireworks display is gorgeous and if you’re fortunate to get a spot on the CSI campus near the live music, it’s really just a slice of Americana that we rarely get to experience anymore,” said Ruth Pierce, Twin Falls City Mayor. “A lot of effort is put into the display to provide a safe, and hopefully more enjoyable, alternative to buying illegal fireworks that tend to create problems for our community. Please only use fireworks from licensed stands in the City limits and use them within the allowed timeframe.”

The City encourages residents to enjoy the community display rather than purchase illegal aerial 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. All aerial fireworks are prohibited from being discharged in Idaho. 

Please be a good neighbor by not discharging aerial firework and only discharging ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks during the allowed timeframe.
