Annual city fireworks show set for July 3

The City of Bella Vista’s annual fireworks display, sponsored by the City of Bella Vista and Discover Bella Vista, will be held just after dark on July 3 at the park below Loch Lomond dam on Glasgow Road.

The display is open to the public, and Bella Vista Police will be directing vehicles for parking starting at 5:30 p.m.

As always, those coming to the show and those living in the area should expect heavier traffic for the event, and more time should be allotted for travel. Parking is not allowed in the city streets rights-of-way, and drivers should obey all no parking signs in the area.
