The Hamilton area fireworks will start at dusk July 4th (some time after 9:30 p.m.).

The free display is sponsored by the City of Hamilton, along with 25 local businesses who are keeping this annual tradition going.

Park your car near the Ravalli County Fairgrounds, or find a seat in the grandstands and let Steve Boshae light the fuses for an even bigger and better show than last year. And we thank the Hamilton Volunteer Fire Department for their safety procedures.

Fireworks can be set off in Hamilton until 1 a.m. July 5th. Then, stop.

Meanwhile, at about the same time in Missoula, the Missoula County Fairgrounds will be filled with people watching the display there. Drive carefully, everybody.

No fireworks can be set off in the Missoula city limits.
