The city’s annual fireworks display to celebrate Independence Day will be held tonight at the Oakland Beach seawall beginning at about 9.
The rain date is July 5. In case of inclement weather, residents should call 738-2000 for updates on delays or cancellations. The Department of Tourism, Culture and Development’s Facebook and Twitter accounts (Facebook.com/WarwickRI and Twitter.com/WarwickRI) will also have updates.
Parking restrictions will be strictly enforced.
Due to the volume of traffic expected at the seawall, residents are also advised to expect heavy delays on Oakland Beach Avenue and to seek alternate routes to the seawall area, such as Sea View Drive or Pequot Avenue.
Residents are advised that the fireworks can also be viewed from City Park, which offers fantastic, unobstructed views of the display along the shoreline.
