The City of Danville and Boyle County will be sponsoring the annual Independence Day Fireworks program at Millennium Park in Danville this Friday, July 04. Firefighters from Boyle County Fire Protection District and the City of Danville will set off the fireworks at around 9:40 PM, with support from Danville Police Department and Boyle County EMS.
The fireworks will be shot from the east portion of the Boyle County Fairgrounds and, as a safety precaution, the fairgrounds will be closed to the general public starting at 8:00 PM the night of the fireworks show. This precaution is to keep bystanders from entering into the fireworks safety zones, which allows for shell debris and embers to fall to the ground without endangering patrons of the park. Attendance at the event will be limited to just outside the Fairgrounds, with the best viewing area being just off the soccer fields at Millennium. The park will have adequate parking, and will be the location of the sound system and the American flag display.
