[ARCHIVED] Chobani and City of Twin Falls Host Independence Day Fireworks Display


The City of Twin Falls is again partnering with Chobani to host the 2019 Independence Day fireworks display that will begin at approximately 10 p.m. Thursday, 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 as a community.

The display will be the fourth consecutive year that Chobani has sponsored the event, which attracts thousands of spectators each year and has become a tradition for both residents and visitors of Twin Falls.

“We encourage the community to attend the show to celebrate America’s birthday together,” said Shawn Barigar, Twin Falls City Mayor. “It’s a great way to join your friends and neighbors without having to throw your own fireworks party at home.”

Residents are reminded that aerial fireworks are illegal to discharge within the city limits, and only ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks 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.
