Join us for the annual 4th of July parade beginning at 9:00 a.m. near Edgewood Elementary School and ending at American Legion Post 434, where the celebration continues. Wrap up the day with fireworks at a new location - Lake Vista Park - at dusk!
Due to construction beginning in a new subdivision adjacent to East Middle School, we are no longer able to launch fireworks at our former longstanding location. After evaluating potential sites throughout Oak Creek, City leadership chose Lake Vista Park as the new location for our 4th of July Fireworks display.
Here are some steps we've taken to make the transition go as smoothly as possible:
Lake Vista Park:
Street parking per the Oak Creek Police Department will be limited to one side in many places. This is to help direct the traffic in a direction that minimizes congestion and for the safety of all. There will be “NO PARKING” signs placed in those areas, and we ask you to please follow directions to avoid any issues. Weather and site conditions permitting, we may have additional parking available at Lake Vista behind the Pavilion for up to 400 vehicles.
There will be additional parking available at Bender Park upper and lower area. Shuttle service to Lake Vista will not be available from these areas.
Two 33 passenger shuttle buses will begin shuttling to Lake Vista Park from the American Legion Post 434, 9327 S Shepard Ave, Oak Creek, (additional parking at East Middle School) beginning at 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. After the fireworks, the shuttle buses will resume transporting passengers from Lake Vista Park back to the American Legion Posts 434. The shuttle will pick up and drop off at the upper legion area.
Martin Law Office of Oak Creek will be offering a $20 credit to those using LYFT to get back and forth to Lake Vista Park on July 4th ONLY. Must be within Oak Creek, to qualify.

On behalf of the Oak Creek Celebrations Commission, we thank you for your patience and understanding while we make this transition.
