Where to see fireworks in Tucson this Fourth of July

  • Updated

Food, fun and fireworks are right around the corner as Southern Arizona communities prepare for July 4.

Here’s a roundup of what to expect.

‘A’ Mountain

The annual Tucson fireworks display on “A” Mountain almost didn’t happen this year because of supply chain issues, according to city spokesman Andrew Squire.

Those issues have since been resolved, so the show will go on, starting at 9 p.m. on Monday, July 4.

The fireworks are free and can be seen from all over the downtown area. Parking Lot B at the Tucson Convention Center, the west lot off of West Cushing Street and South Granada Avenue, will be open starting at 4 p.m. for community members to view the show. Food trucks will be on-site starting at 7 p.m.

Marana

Marana is kicking things off a day early on Sunday, July 3.

Fireworks are scheduled for 9 p.m. at Crossroads at Silverbell District Park, 7548 N. Silverbell Road. From 5 to 8 p.m., there will be other attractions, including a splash pad, field games, inflatables, exhibitors, a car show presented by Obsessions Car Club and an instrument petting zoo, where people will have the opportunity to handle different instruments.

The parking lot at the park opens at 4 p.m., and additional spots can be found around the nearby Arizona Pavilions shopping center. There will also be a shuttle service for handicapped guests only. More info: tucne.ws/1kss

Oro Valley

Oro Valley is hosting its first in-person Fourth of July event since the pandemic began, but, due to a shortage of fireworks, the town will be putting on a laser light show instead.
