The 20th annual BOOM in the Park, presented by Bank of America and Doctors Hospital, will be held Saturday, July 4, at the Columbia County Fairgrounds off Columbia Road.

The fairgrounds parking area will be transformed into the ultimate fireworks tailgate party.  Each vehicle will be directed to an oversized spot, allowing for social distancing.

Admission to the event is free.  Several local bands will perform throughout the evening and performances will be broadcast on a low-power FM frequency so patrons can tune in on their vehicle radio.

Coolers are welcome and there will be food and beverage vendors on site.  No alcohol will be sold.

Parking will only be allowed on the fairgrounds.  No parking will be allowed at Patriots Park or along William Few Parkway or Columbia Road.

Gates will open at 6 p.m. with live music from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.  Fireworks will begin at 9:15.
