Gadsden’s annual fireworks display will begin at 9 p.m. July 4.
Held each year by the Etowah-Gadsden Patriots Association, the fireworks light up the sky over the Coosa River to celebration Independence Day.
John Graham, chairman of the Patriots Association, said the show will last from 20 to 30 minutes.
Last year, fireworks company Pyrotecnico launched more than 600 shells during the show. Graham said the same company is handling the event again and is expected to bring just as many fireworks to this year’s celebration.
The fireworks will be launched from the riverwalk landing area, giving viewers on the west side of the river a good view of the fireworks, bridges and water.
According to the Patriots Association, the best viewing areas are the parking lot near the Mort Glosser Amphitheatre, the area around the Spirit of Citizenship memorial and Moragne Park.
The event is free and attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
