LACEY FREEDOM CONCERT AND FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR
LACEY, WA, June 24, 2015: Lacey continues its tradition of kicking off the area’s Independence Day celebrations with the Freedom Concert and Fireworks Spectacular on Friday, July 3rd. The Freedom Concert will be held from 6:30 to 10:15 p.m. in the Lacey Crossroads parking lot at Yelm Highway and College Street, followed by a 15 minute professional fireworks display launched from William Bush Park, 4400 Chardonnay Drive NE. The park will be closed to preserve a safe zone for the fireworks launch, but the display will be visible to most residences located within 3/4 miles and from the concert stage area at Lacey Crossroads.
This year’s all-ages Freedom Concert features high-energy music and fun with DJ Tony G and “Battle Rhythm,” the 56th Army rock band. Family-friendly activity booths and free face painting will be provided by the Lacey Sunrise Lions and event sponsors TwinStar, Xerox, and the Lacey South Sound Chamber of Commerce. Pizza, ice cream, and a variety of food will also be available for purchase at Lacey Crossroads restaurants. Concert-goers are advised to bring seating to enjoy the outdoor stage and music performances.
Due to the popularity of this event, road access into the area will be limited during the fireworks display and while traffic exits the show. From 10:00 p.m. until approximately 11:45 p.m., detours will be established using 66th Avenue SE, Ruddell Road SE, Mullen Road SE, 37th Avenue SE, and Wiggins Road SE.
More information and a complete map of planned road closures can be found on the city’s official website at www.ci.lacey.wa.us/fireworks.
