Red, White and Blue Springs! City Fireworks Features Fun, Fireworks and Music

BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. – The City of Blue Springs invites residents to an Independence Day celebration on Thursday, July 4 at Peve Stadium, 2000 NW Ashton Drive. Guests are welcome to arrive as early as 6:30 p.m. to get a good spot and concessions will be available for the event.

The City has partnered with KFKF-FM Country 94.1 to present a special concert beginning at 7 p.m. featuring Columbia Nashville recording artist Tyler Farr with special guest 6 Degrees West kicking off the free show.
