The fireworks are loud. What can I do?

Noise is part of any fireworks display. Residents closer to the park may be able to hear the fireworks from their property. Some animals have a heightened sense of sound and may be able to hear fireworks from a greater distance than humans.

Wind speed and direction, humidity, air pressure, cloud cover, and barriers like buildings, hills, and trees impact how far away the fireworks can be heard. The fireworks typically start around 9:45 pm and may last 20 to 30 minutes. If someone in your household is sensitive to the sound of fireworks, please plan accordingly.
