What time are the fireworks?

Fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. after brief remarks from Mayor Walt Maddox.

Where should we park?

Limited parking will be available in the grass lot next to the Amphitheater. Attendees are encouraged to park in the free Downtown Intermodal Facility and take a shuttle or walk to the Amphitheater. Because of road construction in the area, Tuscaloosa Police will be on-site directing traffic.

Does it cost money to attend?

No! This event is completely free to attend. 

Can the fireworks be seen from any other locations?

Though it may be possible to view the fireworks from other locations, your best bet for a clear view is to join us in the Amphitheater!
