Everyone is invited to a big, beautiful Virtual Fireworks party in Frazier Mountain Park’s soccer field on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. Wes Rogers is excited to announce that “the all new, bigger and better fireworks 4th of July now has 10,000 watts of explosive audio power—with free ear plugs.”

Meanwhile, Kern County Sheriff’s deputies are reminding the public that ALL fireworks are illegal in these highly flammable mountain areas, surrounded by forest. Fines for use of fireworks in this area can be $1,500 and more.

Rogers, the host of the Virtual Fireworks celebration, reminds people to bring your friends, family, blanket and lawn chair for his spectacular free show, with fireworks from around the world, “projected high in the sky, with orchestral music, crackles, pops and thunderous explosions.”

 Kern County Fire Department Public Information Officer Andrew Freeborn said deputies are on guard to respond quickly for illegal fireworks use. The county’s slogan for use of fireworks in this area is: “You light it… we write it.”
