The City of Twin Falls is partnering with Chobani to host the 2017 Independence Day fireworks display.

The Police Department will close sections of Falls Avenue, Washington Street North and North College Road that surround the college at 9 p.m.

The celebration will begin at approximately 10 p.m. Tuesday, July 4 at the College of Southern Idaho.

The nearly half-hour fireworks display is free and provides prime viewing areas where spectators of all ages can celebrate Independence Day as a community. This year the City of Twin Falls will coordinate the event that was previously managed by the Magic Valley Citizens Fourth of July Committee.

Due to the large amount of vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the area, the Twin Falls Police Department asks the following:

  • Please plan on arriving early. The Police Department will close sections of Falls Avenue, Washington Street North and North College Road that surround the college at 9 p.m. The road closures ensure the safety of pedestrians in the area.
  • Please be patient. It may take several minutes for police to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic to and from the college campus safely. Please plan for delays and understand that safety is our officers’ primary concern.
  • During fireworks displays in previous years, traffic collisions have occurred as a result of impaired drivers. The area surrounding the college will be heavily patrolled and all drivers suspected of driving under the influence will be arrested. Do not drink and drive.
  • Be aware that personal fireworks are NOT allowed on or around the college campus during the fireworks display.
