NAPERVILLE JULY 4 FIREWORKS DISPLAY TO TAKE PLACE AT FRONTIER SPORTS COMPLEX
The City of Naperville, Naperville Park District and The Salute event organizers Naperville Responds For Veterans issued the following statement regarding the 2020 July 4 fireworks display:
“Due to the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19, representatives from the City of Naperville, Naperville Park District, and Naperville Responds For Veterans have together concluded that Frontier Sports Complex, located at 3380 Cedar Glade Drive, is best suited to offer a socially responsible July 4 fireworks event. The health and safety of our audience is our highest priority, and the decision to temporarily change the location from Knoch Park to Frontier Sports Complex this year was made to ensure that we are doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to residents and visitors who come to enjoy this annual tradition.
“We know many were hoping for a fireworks display at Knoch Park. Despite the disappointment this decision may bring to some, we are grateful to have found a location that allows us to continue this tradition while ensuring the safety of all participants. We look forward to The Salute’s return to Rotary Hill in 2021 and along with it, the fireworks display.”
The fireworks display will take place from 9:30 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 4, at Frontier Sports Complex. Those interested in attending in person can watch from a field within the park or from their vehicles in one of the 906 parking spaces at the complex. An additional 1,000 parking spaces will also be available at Neuqua Valley High School, 3380 Cedar Glade Drive. Spectators are encouraged to practice social distancing at all times. For those wishing to watch the show from home, NCTV17 will be providing a live broadcast of the event.
More information about the NCTV17 event broadcast and maps of available parking and safe viewing locations will be posted at www.naperville.il.us/eventinfo the week before the event.
