PRESS RELEASE 7/2
CITY OF GALLATIN INDEPENDENCE DAY FIREWORKS Attendees May View the Fireworks in or at their Cars or Social Distance in Park
GALLATIN – The City of Gallatin is announcing the fireworks show on Saturday, July 4 at 9pm at Triple Creek Park will proceed as scheduled, though the festival and other events associated with the event were cancelled earlier this year.
“We believe that the public can safely watch this outdoor event with the proper precautions,” said Gallatin Mayor Paige Brown. “There are approximately 1,500 parking spots and 300 acres of open space at Triple Creek Park, Gallatin Civic Center and Municipal Park where families can physically distance themselves, enjoy the show and keep their friends and family safe.”
Gallatin Police will direct traffic; however, citizens will not be assisted in parking and park restrooms will be closed. As in past events, Gallatin Police will allow cars to enter Triple Creek Park until 8:45pm. Viewers can tune into WHIN radio (100.7FM and 1010AM) for music that will be synchronized with the fireworks display.
“I think it’s important for us to move forward with this uniquely American event in a responsible way,” said Mayor Brown. “We simply ask that everyone be respectful of their neighbors and not infringe on their physical space.”
Based out of LaFollette, Tennessee, Pyro Shows operates more than 1,000 firework events each year. Gallatin’s fireworks show includes 1,163 shells ranging from 2 ½” to 6”, which can reach 600 feet in the air. The show is 22 minutes long and will begin promptly at 9pm.
