Have A Safe And Enjoyable Fourth of July

Update: This news report gives the latest info about city-sponsored fireworks - where they will go forward and where they have been cancelled.

We hope all of you have a save and enjoyable Fourth of July.

We salute our active military personnel and also all of our veterans. We know we owe those people a huge vote of thanks.

We invite you to participate in Fourth of July activities wherever you are. Below we provide links to some of the bigger Independence Day events in Utah.

Provo's Stadium of Fire is one of the largest celebrations in the US. It culminates with a fireworks display that can be seen throughout the area. It is fun to be right there in the stadium, but it is also enjoyable to view the fireworks from other spots in town.

In Salt Lake City, there will be a big fireworks show in Sugarhouse Park. There will also be fireworks in other communities in the Salt Lake Valley.

In Ogden, the Hot Rock'n 4th offers a range of activities. At last report, officials said they would make a game time decision whether the fireworks would go on, or be canceled because of fire danger. Undoubtedly, there will be fireworks in several places in the Ogden area.

Moab and St George will also host celebrations that include fireworks.

Many other communities will stage fireworks shows, but some communities have canceled fireworks because of fire danger. Private fireworks are banned on public lands and in many other areas in the state. We hope people will honor the restrictions. Where fireworks are legal, we hope people will follow safety rules.

Wildfires are burning in several areas around Utah. At this time they are not inhibiting travel on freeways or major highways, and they are not blocking recreation in our national parks or major recreation areas.

Check for current information on wildfires, and also on fire restrictions.
