'Lights Over Lake Erie' Delivers Boom Before Fourth of July
This year City Hall and Mercyhurst University are delivering the boom with Lights Over Lake Erie
Tuesday, July 3
Were you one of the area citizens who got super pumped when they heard fireworks were coming back to Erie this year for the Fourth of July holiday?
You are not alone, as residents have been clamoring for a fireworks display that takes advantage of our beautiful bayfront and its glittering waters. Mayor Joe Schember heard our pleas, and this year City Hall and Mercyhurst University are delivering the boom with Lights Over Lake Erie, centered around the Bicentennial Tower and shooting off after the premiere 8 Great Tuesdays concert on July 3.
Many Erieites will remember making the trek to Mercyhurst University (College, as it was back then) for the city's fireworks show, and that institution of higher learning is proud to be part of an Independence Day extravaganza yet again.
'Lights' isn't the only opportunity to catch fireworks in the Erie area on July 3. You can also check out:
