Hazelwood’s July 4th Fireworks Features 1,700 Aerial Shells
The skies over Hazelwood will be lit up with hundreds of multi-colored star bursts when the City hosts its annual Fourth of July pyro-musical fireworks display on Wednesday, July 4, at White Birch Park, 1186 Teson Road, starting at dusk. A total of 1,700 shells are expected to be launched and exploded in the air for approximately 20 minutes, giving residents and guests one of the best fireworks shows in the North County area.
For the second consecutive time, the City of Hazelwood has established a contract with Albeck Enterprises, LLC, d/b/a Lantis Fireworks of St. Louis, to do this year’s event. “Last year, they did a superb job presenting the most spectacular fireworks show to date,” said Doug Littlefield, Hazelwood Parks and Recreation Division supervisor. “They gave us ‘more bang for our buck’ by doubling the number of aerial shells used in the show without making u s go over our budget.”
Littlefield went on to say that last year’s show featured huge colorful star bursts that rivaled the size of those seen at the Arch for Fair St. Louis. Plus, the amazing finale was a real crowd pleaser. “This year’s fireworks display promises to be even better,” Littlefield added.
Boy Scout Troop 730 will be selling hot dogs, hamburgers, potato chips, soda, water, pretzels, sno-cones and candy at the park to help raise money for the organization. In addition, the Women’s Democratic Club will have glow necklaces available for purchase.
Off-site parking will be available at the Knights of Columbus and Howdershell Park where people can walk to White Birch Park from these locations. People can also park their vehicles at Hazelwood West High School and use the shuttle bus service, starting at 7 p.m. The buses will be making pick-ups every 15 minutes.
