Fourth of July Fireworks
In conjunction with the Lexington Fireworks Display, UK Parking and Transportation Services will be hosting the annual fireworks viewing on the top deck of Parking Structure #5 (located next to Kennedy Book Store).
Any member of the University community possessing a valid UK parking permit is welcome to park in the structure free of charge and enjoy the fireworks.
The South Limestone gates to the parking garage will open at 8 p.m. on July 4, and will close at the beginning of the fireworks display. The gates on the Upper Street side of the structure will not be open for the event. The top deck lights will be turned off during the display to enhance viewing.

No animals are allowed, with the exception of service animals. The UK Police Department will have officers on hand to enforce these restrictions for the everyone's safety.
