Sky Carp 4th of July Plans

The City of Beloit’s fireworks show will be hosted by the Beloit Sky Carp for the second time. Last year’s event was at Pohlman Field and this year ABC Supply Stadium is the site for the fireworks show. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the July 4 concert and fireworks display took place in Riverside Park in Beloit.

The stadium will open its gates at 3 p.m and at 4 p.m. the movie National Treasure, starring Nicholas Cage will be shown on the scoreboard in left field. The movie includes many references to the founding fathers of the United States, and references to historic symbols such as the Liberty Bell and more.

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets to sit on to watch from the outfield. As usual for events at the stadium, lawn chairs will not be allowed on the field.

After the movie, the Beloit Janesville Symphony Orchestra will perform. The fireworks will begin to light up the sky as the sun sets over the ball park.

This event is free to the public and no RSVP is required. There will be activities for kids before the Orchestra performs including inflatable bounce houses.

Food will be available for purchase.

For those who wish to have a premium experience, tickets to the Beloit Health System Club will be offered for for a fee, with the regular amenities including a full menu.
