The Town of Huachuca City will mark Independence Day with a fireworks display at dark on July 4th. The fireworks display will be shot from Keeline Park by Whetstone Fire District firefighters.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all other Independence Day activities have been cancelled so there will be no town-sponsored activities in Leffingwell Park this year. However, all the parks, to include Leffingwell, will remain open. Many residents will be able to see the fireworks display from their own homes and it will be visible from public spaces throughout the community. Residents are welcome to watch the display from any of the parks, but are urged to safely distance by maintaining of space of at least 6-feet from other people, wear face coverings when physical distancing is difficult, and avoid gathering in large groups.
The Huachuca City Police Department has announced that portions of Gila Street and Skyline Drive (see below) will be closed on July 4th from 3:00 pm through 9:00 pm in order to ensure public safety prior to, and during, the fireworks display.
– Gila Street from School Drive to Skyline Drive
– Skyline Drive from Gonzales Blvd. to Edgewood Street
The Town of Huachuca wishes all our residents a safe and enjoyable holiday!
