2015 Great American 4th of July: Event Details

fireworksThe City of Cape Girardeau, the Southeast Missourian, Isle Casino Cape Girardeau and River Radio are excited to bring back our patriotic program and fireworks display to Cape Girardeau for 2015!
As of June 24, with the current river stage forecasts we do not feasibly foresee an accessible riverfront along which to have a quality July 4 event. A decision has been made to relocate the event, in its entirety, to Arena Park. 
Event access will be similar to previous years, and attendees will have access to most areas of the park, including the grandstands, to view the program and show.
In case of inclement weather, the fireworks will be moved to Sunday, July 5 at 9:15 p.m. at Arena Park.
This event is presented by the City of Cape Girardeau, Isle Casino Cape Girardeau, River Radio, and the Southeast Missourian. Additional contributors: Missouri Dry Dock, Osage Marine, Shivelbines, Cape Christian School, Tower Stone and Rock Co., and rustmedia.
Full event information is available on the City’s website.
