Please exercise patience with traffic and extreme caution with pedestrians as many families will be walking and biking Downtown to experience the fireworks show before and after hours in dark conditions. High visibility clothing, glow sticks and flash lights encouraged while walking around in the evening.
The fireworks show will begin at approximately 9:30 pm and will last approximately twenty minutes. The Community members wishing to view the fireworks display are encouraged to congregate on the closed roadways of Railroad Ave. between S. Livermore Ave and South “L” St., on Maple St. between First St. and Third St and First Street from Maple to Flag Pole Plaza. The parking lot behind Stockmen’s Park (at Railroad and L St) will also be closed to create a safe community viewing experience with DJ and FREE Glow Sticks for community youth, while supplies last! These locations should be the prime viewing locations, but you’re welcome to experience from other downtown locations within the safe viewing areas inside of the street closures.
Community members can bring chairs and set them up on the closed roadways. The fireworks display will not be a high aerial show; instead, it will consist of concentrated low level fireworks that will provide a spectacular show for those in the prime viewing locations. Community members wanting to view the fireworks from other than the prime viewing locations should select a location within a few blocks of the parking garage, with visibility of the top of the downtown parking structure.
Traffic delays are expected on all roadways surrounding downtown from 4:00 pm until 11:00 pm. Community members are encouraged to walk or bike to the downtown area or use public transportation. Those not wanting to access the downtown area should use Fourth St. or Portola Ave. to travel across town.
This event is designed to provide our residents a place to gather and enjoy their family and friends as a community while experiencing the Livermore Fireworks Celebration.
Many downtown businesses will be open for 4th of July! If you plan on dining or shopping downtown it is a good idea to call ahead to make sure they are open for reservations.

To keep it safe and family friendly… No Alcohol Consumption, BBQs, Fire pits or personal fireworks are allowed. Easy-ups or tents are also prohibited as they block the viewing experience for our fellow community members.

Independence together as a community… because “United We Shine”!
