The Annual July 4th celebration will take place at Eudora Middle School, located at 2635 Church Street, on the evening of July 4th. The fireworks should begin at approximately 9:30PM. The display is expected to last around 20 minutes. The annual fireworks display is sponsored by the City of Eudora.
According to Gary Scott, Director of the Eudora Parks and Recreation Department, there will be no food or drink vendors on site for this year’s celebration. Scott did want to remind everyone to make sure and clean up after themselves in the parking lot following the display.
As a added note for citizens that wish to shoot fireworks off, city statutes allow for use fireworks on July 2,3 and 4 only. You can legally shoot them off from 7:00AM to 10:00PM on July 2 and 3 and from 7:00AM to midnight on July 4.
(EDITORS NOTE: We incorrectly posted 7:00 PM as opposed to 7:00 AM above. We have corrected this and apologize for the error.)
Per state codes, bottle rockets are not allowed at any time, including during the Independence holidays. The Eudora Police and Fire Departments urge prudent use and careful supervision when discharging any fireworks during the time periods when fireworks are allowed. While personal safety is always important, extra care should be given this year with our extremely hot and dry weather of the last few weeks. We checked with the Fire Department and, as of the moment, there are no burn bans or restrictions in place due to climate conditions.
