The Town of Parker is hosting its Fourth of July fireworks event, but this time, ticket prices will be available in tiers.
Those interested in attending will have the option to choose between $30, $20 and $10 tickets for the show, each with varying access to the festivities. This is being done “to provide maximum flexibility with still-changing health guidelines,” according to a town newsletter.
“Although COVID-19 event capacity restrictions were lifted in mid-May in Douglas County, an event of this nature takes many months of pre-planning,” said Brooke Spain with the Town of Parker. “Decisions on the event format had to be made when state and local health restrictions were still in place.”
The red zone, which costs $30 for a parking pass, allows for parking in the paved lots at Salisbury Park and seating on the grass multipurpose field. The white zone, which requires a $20 parking pass, grants parking and an adjacent tailgate area on the polo field at Salisbury Park.
There will be food vendors, live music and other entertainment like magicians, stilt walkers and jugglers for those in the red and white zones. The white zone will only be able to hear the concert played over speakers, they will not be able to see the stage.
For $10, blue zone pass holders will have the “best view of the fireworks,” according to the newsletter. These ticket holders will park in the North Salisbury field. Patrons will not have a tailgate space but can sit at their bumper and in or on their vehicles.
The first 50 people to pledge and donate blood during a June 30 town blood drive will get a free blue zone parking pass for the event.
“While this event will differ from our traditional Parker Stars and Stripes Celebration, it will still be a great time to enjoy live music, walk-around entertainment and fireworks display,” according to the town newsletter.
The tickets will go on sale June 23 at ParkerOnline.org/1102 at 10 a.m. This website also has additional information about the show. Event goers will be asked to remain in their designated zone during the show.
“We are excited to be able to bring this event to our community in a fun and creative format and look forward to it being a great experience for attendees,” Spain said.
The event is set to go on in rain or shine, unless there is a fire ban or added COVID-19 restrictions that cause it to be canceled or rescheduled.
The town plans to return to the traditional Parker Stars and Stripes Celebration in 2022, Spain said.
