Chobani, the City of Twin Falls, Idaho Independent Health Care Providers, are sponsoring the 2016 Independence Day fireworks display, which will be held at the College of Southern Idaho on Monday, July 4.
The community event, which is hosted by the Magic Valley Citizen’s Fourth of July committee, will begin at 10 p.m. and is expected to last approximately 20 minutes. Due to the large amount of vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the area, the Twin Falls Police Department asks the following:
* Please plan on arriving early. The Police Department will close sections of Falls Avenue, Washington Street North and North College Road that surround 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. Do not drink and drive.
* Be aware that no personal fireworks are allowed on or around the college campus during the fireworks display.
