Fireworks are banned in the city of Newcastle, but, as always, there is one place where residents can legally watch the pyrotechnic displays mostly associated with Independence Day.

The city’s annual Fourth of July celebration returns to Lake Boren Park this Saturday.

As the region experiences particularly dry conditions, now more than ever, city officials are pleading with citizens to heed the firework ban.

“Our fire and police departments recommend that people take advantage of the elaborate public firework displays around the region,” said Wendy Kirchner, Newcastle community activities liaison. “Please consider treating your family to a fun Fourth of July this year at Lake Boren Park.”

Residents can start filing into the park at 6 p.m. July 4, when vendors will begin selling food.

Neil Diamond tribute band Cherry Cherry will entertain the crowd from 8-10 p.m. Led by vocalist Steve Kelly, Cherry Cherry honors Diamond’s “timeless” music, according to the band’s website.

The fireworks show starts shortly after it gets dark, or at about 10 p.m.

AvalonBay, the developer of a new community at the north entrance to Newcastle, is the event’s title sponsor. The Golf Club at Newcastle and Waste Management also contributed to the event.

The city reminds residents to report illegal fireworks displays immediately by calling 911.
