Celebrate Independence Day weekend with the City of Warrensville Heights on Sunday, July 5, as we observe our nation’s birthday with a custom show, featuring several hundred fireworks and special effects, illuminating the sky in between Warrensville Heights Middle School and High School. The fireworks show will begin at dusk, with limited seating in the football field bleachers behind Warrensville Heights High School. Handicap parking will be available at the high school, on a first-come, first-served basis. General parking will be available at the Warrensville Heights Library Branch, YMCA, and the old Ellacott-Volkswagen and Bass Chevrolet dealerships. Spectators with handicap placards must access the high school parking lot southbound on Northfield Road from Harvard Road.

The City urges spectators to remember that safety is key this holiday weekend. Coolers, picnic baskets, book bags, and other large containers will not be permitted in the football field stadium.
