Fireworks with a Splash
Fireworks seem to be the highlight of most people’s memories of the 4th of July. This year’s Fireworks Show will surely be a highlight for many of our community’s children as it is shaping up to be one the best ever. We have partnered with the Morgan Hill Aquatics Foundation to add their Family Fun Night to our Fireworks on the Green thus creating Fireworks with a Splash.
Fireworks on The Green will once again be at the Morgan Hill Outdoor Sports Center, 16500 Condit Road, located between Tennant and E. Dunne Avenues. Gates will open at 4pm so you can come on in and set up a good viewing spot for the fireworks, which will begin around 9:30pm. Bring a picnic basket if you’d like, and buy beer, soft drinks, and other beverages on the premises. There will be many food vendors such Champions Bistro, Java2You, El Burrito Crazy, Cal Coast Kettle Corn, Kona Ice and more. Please do not bring any bottles onto the premises.
The show will start at 6pm with the Country Cougars playing a mix of new country hits from hot artists such as Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, and Kacey Musgraves to country classics from legends such as Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline that will appease just about any audience.
Starting around 7 pm our featured band, The Usual Suspects come to the stage. They have performed each of the past 20 years as part of the Morgan Hill Freedom Fest Celebrations alternating between the Family Street Dance and the Fireworks Show. They are a favorite for us with their classic rock sounds, where they feature everything from Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Santana, U2, Van Halen, AC/DC, and so much more. They will be entertaining you until its dark enough to see the fireworks.
You will also enjoy an encore performance from Karen Crane and The Patriotic Singers if you missed that the night before. The turf fields will be open for soccer and flag football fun too. Of course, don’t forget to look into the Family Fun Night right next door at the Aquatic Center.
