Where are the fireworks in York County?
Nothing says Fourth of July like fireworks, and Yorkers have an array of displays to choose from this weekend.
In York City, the big show will be at PeoplesBank Park, where July 4 York will be sponsored by York Traditions Bank.
Gates open at the stadium at 5:30 p.m., and entertainment includes Classic Movie Night on the giant video board at 6 p.m; a patriotic performance by the Spring Garden Band at 8:30 p.m.; and the CGA Family Fun Festival throughout the evening at Brooks Robinson Plaza and on the outfield, featuring inflatables, a foam dance party and a mechanical bull.
The evening concludes with a fireworks display at 9:30 p.m. sponsored by Glatfelter Insurance Group.
Admission to the event and activities are free, and food and drinks will be available for sale throughout the stadium. Bring beach towels and blankets to lounge in the outfield — no lawn chairs.
