Published June 21, 2018 This content is archived.

Tens of thousands of spectators will flock to the North Campus on July 4 to watch a spectacular fireworks display over Lake LaSalle and celebrate Independence Day.

An estimated 40,000 to 50,000 people are expected to watch the fireworks at or near Baird Point and at other spots on the North Campus, based on the turnout of previous years. Thousands more likely will park along Millersport Highway, Sweet Home Road and other nearby roadways, making the Independence Day fireworks the largest event that occurs at UB each year.

The Erie County Wind Ensemble will perform at Baird Point from 8:45-10 p.m., with the fireworks immediately following the concert.

The rain date is July 16 at Bassett Park, 359 Klein Road.
