Big changes in Woodbury this year: After years of being held at Ojibway Park, the annual Fourth of July celebration and fireworks is moving to Bielenberg Sports Center, south of Bailey Road and east of Radio Drive, adjacent to East Ridge High School.

This year’s celebration will kick off at 7 p.m. with musical entertainment featuring Maiden Dixie, a country rock band. The fireworks will be launched at 10 p.m. from the white fields, located on the east side of the ice arenas and fieldhouse. The band will be staged on the south side of the East Ridge High School tennis courts.

All activities are free. Concessions and glow necklaces will be sold on site beginning at 6 p.m.

The move from Ojibway Park was planned to showcase the newly expanded and renovated sports center, but the grand opening — featuring facility tours and free activities in the ice rinks and fieldhouse — has been rescheduled for Sept. 20, said Bob Klatt, Parks and Recreation director.

Parking is available at the sports center and high school. No parking is allowed on Bailey Road or Radio Drive.
