The Annual Independence Day Concert and Fireworks Display is a great time to usher in the summer season and to greet your neighbors. It’s a fun occasion to enjoy the music, perhaps share a meal and to watch an awesome fireworks show.

The Orange Fire Marshal’s Office would like to remind everyone that grills and individual fireworks, including sparklers, are not permitted at the event. The best place to enjoy fireworks is at a public display conducted legally and safely by trained professionals. Be safe and show respect for fellow area residents.

Event Coordinator, Rocky Salperto added; Please do not leave children unsupervised. The Department of Police Services and AMR will have a designated safety area (Orange Center Road Entrance) to report lost children or any suspicious activity. Announcements of lost children WILL NOT be made by public address systems.

Please exercise care when entering and leaving the fairgrounds. Be courteous to your fellow residents as a crowd in excess of 6,000 is expected. Designated CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) members will be present to enforce and keep clear safety areas (marked with white lines on the fairgrounds.)

Pets must be leashed. Be safe and enjoy the show!
