As the heat index rises for this holiday weekend, the Urban Districts Alliance wants to remind patrons that Fireworks at the Field on Saturday, July 2nd offers many opportunities for families to celebrate their independence and remain cool. From 3pm to 9pm, Fireworks at the Field offers four different air conditioned venues for families take a break from the heat and still have fun.
For only $5, patrons can enjoy arts activities including face-painting and balloon-twisting at The Creamery Arts Center, ice skate at Mediacom Ice Park, explore the interactive exhibits at the Discovery Center and enjoy inflatables from Amberg Entertainment in the Bill Rowe Training Center at Hammons Field.
The admission sticker for Fireworks at the Field also allows for patrons to come and go as often as they like. We encourage everyone to visit the over 40 restaurants that call Center City home before, during and after the event.
Main stage entertainment starts at 3pm at Hammons Field with local bands, the RetroGnomes, Little Hoover’s Big Band, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin and Big Smith, and followed by the region’s largest fireworks show!
Advance Fireworks at the Field stickers are now on sale for $5 at all Springfield area Price Cutter Supermarkets (including the downtown Bistro Market) and the Hammons Field box office. The admission price the day of the event will be $7 per person. Veterans and active military personnel with an ID can purchase stickers at the gate for $3. Children under 5 are free.
