Bethalto 4th of July Celebration
The Village of Bethalto has teamed up with First MidAmerica Credit Union and St. Louis Regional Airport to bring a 4th of July Fireworks Celebration to our village. The fireworks display will take place on Sunday, June 27th, 2021, and is scheduled to start at 9:15 p.m. The launch site for this year’s display has changed from the usual location to afford for a safer event for all. The fireworks will be launched from inside St. Louis Regional Airport. See the attached map for the launching location and adjust your viewing sites appropriately. There will be no parking on Route 111 on the day of the event. All vehicles parked on Route 111 will be towed at the owner’s expense. Route 111 from Bender Avenue to Airline Drive will be barricaded and closed at 8:35 p.m. until the end of the fireworks display, so get to your parking and viewing sites before 8:35 p.m to avoid delays and congestion. St. Louis Regional Airport Authorities will mow the grassy areas owned by the authority near Bender and Route 111 as well as the areas behind QuikTrip and Arby’s to offer sitting / viewing from those sites. Parking is at a premium so get out early and be patient. Thank you to First MidAmeria Credit Union for the financial support for the event.
