With special thanks to Desert Diamond Casinos and Entertainment for its generous donation, the 20th Annual “A” Mountain Fireworks Celebration will start at approximately 9:15 p.m.Monday, July 4.

“A big thanks, once again, to Desert Diamond Casinos and Entertainment for generously sponsoring the fireworks. Thanks also to 94.9 MIXfm for providing the soundtrack,” said Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild. “The 4th of July is a time for family and a time for all of us to reflect on what it means to live in a democracy.”

Residents may enjoy the “A” Mountain Fireworks Celebration from the Tucson Convention Center’s (TCC) Parking Lot B (off Cushing Street between Granada and Church Avenue) or Parking Lot C (off Granada between Broadway Boulevard and Cushing Street). Parking will be free. There also will be food vendors (burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, and refreshments) available from 7-9 p.m. A patriotic soundtrack to the fireworks display will be broadcast on 94.9 MIXfm and MIXfm.com.

The Sun Link streetcar provides convenient access to the TCC at the Cushing Street stops and will run until midnight to accommodate holiday crowds. Parking will be available at the TCC and throughout downtown.

Beginning at 5 p.m. on July 4, Mission Road will be closed from Starr Pass Boulevard to Congress Street. Mission Road will reopen approximately one hour following the completion of the fireworks show. Additionally, the eastbound exit ramp at I-10 and Congress and the westbound I-10 exit ramps at Silverlake and Congress will be closed from 9-11 p.m. to ease congestion. See the attached map for road closures related to this event.
