We are pleased to announce that the 32nd Annual Fireworks and Big Horn Lions Club fundraising event is planned for Saturday, July 4, 2020! We invite the community to celebrate our country’s birthday at the Big Horn Equestrian Center.

Several organizations have been diligently working together to make the Fireworks a reality this year.  We need the entire community’s help and cooperation to put on this family event that has become a tradition in our area. 

First, we encourage all visitors to help us maintain a safe and healthy Independence Day. In order to hold this event we will be following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Wyoming Department of Health recommendations to prevent the transmission of Covid-19. 

There will be some changes – the gates will not open until 5:30pm.  Please do not come out earlier. There will not be bands or other entertainment this year. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink or you can purchase these items from vendors.  The clubhouse will be serving adult beverages.  All food and beverage vendors will be following distancing guidelines and food safety precautions. We ask everyone to respect distancing between cars and consume food and beverages in proximity to your parking space. Staff will be using masks and gloves if they are to have direct contact with or close proximity to another person. 

The use of masks is encouraged for attendees if you will be in close proximity to anyone not in your household. Your safest alternative is to maintain personal distancing recommendations. For the safety of all attendees there will be hand sanitizer and wash stations available at all portable toilet locations.

Remember that this community event is put on as a fundraiser for the Big Horn Lions Club.  Your contributions this day help fund scholarships for local students and to provide the gift of sight to those in our community in need. 

We are so fortunate to be able to hold a gathering of this size.  It is our hope that that we all can keep each other safe so that we can continue to provide community-based activities at the Equestrian Center throughout the summer and fall. As is the case each year, this event is dependent upon the weather and other unforeseen circumstances.  Watch the Big Horn Equestrian Center Facebook page for the most current updates.

Please help us celebrate our nation’s birthday!  Be Safe, be Kind and be Responsible.
