Join us for our annual fireworks display! Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this will be a FIREWORKS ONLY event this year. There will be NO vendors or entertainment. 

Free parking and viewing from your vehicle location is available in the University of Delaware Athletic Complex lots.

Information regarding the opening of parking lots will be available after June 1.

Please leave your pets at home and be sure they are secured safely. Fireworks displays tend to scare pets and many animals are lost around the 4th of July.
