To celebrate this Independence Day, the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Fireworks Project Team, and the City of Bowling Green, invite the community to come out and enjoy the pyrotechnics display on July 3rd at dusk, approximately 9:45 pm.
As announced previously, this annual event will happen in a new location. The launching of the fireworks will happen in a secured area within the National Tractor Pulling Championships property. No unauthorized persons will be allowed past the cement barriers located around this area. The prime location to view the display will be from the Wood County Agricultural Society property located in the camping area behind the Fairgrounds. Access to this lot will be from Brim Rd and will be open at 7:00 pm. Volunteers will be guiding guests to the proper parking spaces and the Chamber asks that guests follow the directions given by the volunteers in order to maintain a safe and organized experience. The Wood County Sheriff’s Office will be present within the fairgrounds parking area.
Additional parking will be available in the lot across from the Fairgrounds on Poe Road. No volunteers will be guiding parking in that area.
The Fairgrounds proper will not be accessible for this event and roadside parking will not be permitted.
At the conclusion of the display, if you are leaving the main parking area from the north exit onto Brim Rd., you will be directed to turn left and if you are leaving from the south exit onto Brim, you will be instructed to turn right. Those parked at the Poe Road lot will only be able to exit onto Haskins Road. Bowling Green Police Division will provide crowd control and traffic direction outside of the Wood County Fairgrounds
