ROSWELL, Ga. – This year marks the 15th annual Fireworks Extravaganza held in Roswell. For many years, citizens from Roswell and beyond have gathered at Roswell High School to celebrate Independence Day in style. This year, however, calls for a change in venue.
Roswell High School will undergo renovation this summer. As a result, the July 4 Fireworks Extravaganza will take place at Sweet Apple Elementary School.
This relocation requires a good deal of preparation. More than 30,000 people attended last year’s celebration, and the Roswell Recreation and Parks Department must find a way to accommodate them with this new location. The Recreation and Parks Department is in the process of notifying businesses and residents near Sweet Apple about the upcoming fireworks celebration.
The city is not planning to have any entertainment prior to the fireworks display, but is discussing the possibility of having food trucks at the event.
“Sweet Apple is a great location and we are really looking forward to seeing everyone come out for the fireworks this year,” said Morgan Rodgers, assistant director of the Roswell Recreation and Parks Department.
The fireworks will begin around 9:30 p.m., or when darkness falls. All questions concerning the event can be addressed at 770-641-3705. Sweet Apple Elementary School is located at 12025 Etris Road, Roswell.
