Fourth of July Fireworks

Fireworks Display

PTS will not host the fireworks viewing in 2016, due to the relocation of the Lexington Fireworks Display.

In conjunction with the Lexington Fireworks Display, UK Parking and Transportation Services will be hosting the annual fireworks viewing on the top deck of the South Limestone Garage (PS #5), located next to Kennedy's Wildcat Den.

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.

Those planning to attend the fireworks viewing must enter from the South Limestone gates. The Upper Street gates will remain closed. The gates will open at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 4. The top deck lights will be turned off during the display to enhance the viewing experience.

Patrons are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, and food and drink are permitted. However, alcoholic beverages, grills, open fires, and ALL fireworks - including sparklers - are prohibited. No animals are allowed, with the exception of service animals. The University of Kentucky Police Department will be present to enforce these restrictions. Portable restroom facilities and trash receptacles will be provided.

Take advantage of this family-friendly atmosphere and avoid the crowds while still enjoying the fireworks!
