“Join us for an unforgettable evening at our Famous Fortress Fireworks on July!” said Obetz Mayor Angela Kirk. “We are excited to bring the community together for a night filled with food trucks, inflatables, yard games, and live music from Stadium 11, all leading up to our spectacular fireworks show. The city of Obetz events are designed to bring together neighbors, families, and friends to strengthen our community bond and foster a sense of unity among our residents. We hope to see you all there!”

The Famous Fortress Fireworks will be held on July 3 and be set off behind the Fortress at approximately 9:50 p.m. The Fortress is located at 2015 Recreation Trail, Obetz.
