Hazelwood’s 2015 Fourth of July fireworks display will be held at White Birch Park, 1186 Teson Road, and is scheduled to begin at dark, about 9:15 p.m. and last about 20 minutes. Because voters passed Proposition P in April, the additional revenue stream has allowed Hazelwood to resume its annual free pyro-musical fireworks display on July 4th. In the event of rain, plans are to reschedule for July 5.
