Hoover brings back the July 4th fireworks display to the Met on July 2nd
After a three-year hiatus, the city of Hoover is bringing back a 4th of July fireworks display this year, just without the music festival that accompanied the fireworks from 2013 to 2017.
The fireworks display is scheduled to take place at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium on Friday, July 2 at 9 p.m. ET. The stadium itself will not be open, but people are welcome to watch the fireworks from the upper parking lot, said Erin Colbaugh, the city’s events coordinator. .
The lower stadium parking lot and Champions Way, the road to the new baseball / softball fields at the Hoover Met Complex, will be closed as fireworks are being fired from that parking lot, Colbaugh said.
Although there is no music festival, the patriotic music that coincides with the 15-minute fireworks display will be broadcast on 87.9 FM, she said. Pyro Shows is the company that presents the exhibition at a cost of $ 20,000 to the city of Hoover, she said.
There will be no food or drink sales, but people are welcome to bring their own food, Colbaugh said.
The Hoover and Riverchase country clubs are expected to have fireworks displays after dark on Saturday July 3, and the Greystone Golf and Country Club are expected to have one on Sunday July 4.
The Hoover Country Club grounds will be open to club members, but the fireworks display is usually visible there from parts of the Green Valley neighborhood. The Riverchase and Greystone Country Club celebrations will be open to members of those clubs and their respective communities, but these fireworks may be visible from other locations as well.
