Independence Day is a day to commemorate the Declaration of Independence. It is a day for friends and families to get together to celebrate with barbecues, parades and fireworks. The City of Whitefish encourages safety while celebrating the 4th of July and to be considerate of your neighbors. Celebrating the holiday with fireworks can be a terrifying ordeal for some combat veterans. The City has ensured regulations for discharging fireworks within the city limits.
Fireworks can only be discharged between 11:00 A.M and 10:00 P.M. on July 3rd; and between 11:00 A.M. and 11:59 P.M. on July 4th. Permitted fireworks are those that are cardboard or heavy paper cylinder tube or cone that produces a shower of color and sparks that reach a maximum of 15 feet; may whistle or pop; and is not designed to explode or leave the ground; may be a pyrotechnic wheel device that can be attached to a post or tree; or any device that spins, jumps, or emits popping sounds when placed on the ground; and does not travel laterally more than 10 feet on a smooth surface when discharged.
The Chamber of Commerce will be sponsoring the fireworks display at City Beach on July 4th. The fireworks will begin at dusk (appx 10:30 P.M.). Parking is limited at City Beach, so we encourage patrons to walk, bike or take the free shuttle bus service that will run between downtown Whitefish and City Beach from 7:00 P.M. to 11:00 P.M. The busses will load on Central Avenue, in front of the O'Shaughnessy Arts Center.
Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
