The Spirit of Princeton invites the community to the 12th annual Independence Day fireworks on Thursday, July 1, at 9 p.m., at the fields next to the Princeton University Stadium along Western Way. The site will open at 7 p.m. for picnics and socializing; attendance is free. The fireworks will take place rain or shine; only lightning will cancel the show. No alcoholic beverages are allowed at the site, and smoking is not permitted because of the new artificial turf. The site can be accessed by foot while parking is available in University Lot 21 below the fields off Faculty Road, as well as in the University parking garage on Prospect Street. The Spirit of Princeton is a non-profit organization dedicated to “bringing the community together” through a variety of civic events, including the fireworks, the Memorial Day Parade, the Flag Day celebration, and the Veteran’s Day ceremony.
