Florissant Fireworks Again at Eagan Center
The City of Florissant’s traditional firework display will be held on Thursday, July 4th at the James J. Eagan Center. The display will be launched from an area behind the Rose Garden and adjacent to the soccer field in Florissant Valley Park.
Gateway Fireworks Displays will produce this year’s display. This is the second consecutive year the City of Florissant has contracted with Gateway for their pyrotechnic services. They have been in existence since 2004 and are the fastest growing fireworks exhibitor in the Midwest.
Prior to the fireworks display there will be an outdoor concert featuring the Northwinds Concert Band starting from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The concert will be held on the City’s Showmobile stage located near the flag-pole area of the James J. Eagan Center.
Public parking will be available on the Northwest (Ice Rink) side of the James J. Eagan Center. After 5:30 p.m., the parking lot for the general public will only be accessible from the Waterford Drive entrance. The Parker Road entrance will be closed at 5:30 p.m. for band members and V.I.P. parking.
Only the upper and lower level lobbies and the locker rooms of the James J. Eagan Center will be open to the public for restroom privileges. There also will be 8 portable toilets located in Florissant Valley Park near Waterford Drive.
In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be cancelled. The fireworks display will be postponed to the following night (Friday, 7/5/13 @ 9:30 p.m.)
