Fireworks show junkies have plenty of options to get their fill this weekend for the Fourth of July.

In Lawrence, the big show was moved to Clinton Lake this year from the Kansas River. The Sesquicentennial Point fireworks display by the Lawrence Jaycees will begin at 10 p.m. Friday.

Parking will be available only in specified locations and not on Clinton Dam.

Other fireworks displays include:


The city's annual fireworks show will begin at dark Friday at the McLouth Sports Complex, and viewers can park and watch along Bulldog Lane.

Baldwin City

The traditional fireworks show will start at dark Friday at the baseball fields at Baldwin High School.


The Basehor fireworks display will begin at 9:15 p.m. Friday at the Basehor-Linwood High School football stadium, and before that the national anthem and a flag ceremony will start at 9 p.m. at the football field.


The city will sponsor a fireworks display Friday after dark at the Eudora school district's south campus. The parking lots at the middle and high schools on Church Street south of Kansas Highway 10 will be open to watch the show.

De Soto

The city's fireworks display will be 30 to 45 minutes after sundown Friday at the De Soto High School Stadium, 8800 Penner Ave.

Perry Lake

The Perry Lake Association's public display will draw a crowd to the lake in Jefferson County at 10 p.m. Saturday, one day later than most area shows. The grounds will be open for parking at 5 p.m.
