Stillwater is gearing up for a Fourth of July celebration with live music, Civil War era cannons and an extended fireworks display.
Stillwater is planning the city’s biggest fireworks show yet. Thanks to donations from residents, businesses and local foundations, the city has added 10 extra minutes to the fireworks show (that starts shortly after 10 p.m.)
Starting at 3 p.m., on Saturday, Battery I of the 1st US Artillery will set up 5 muzzle loading cannons on Mulberry Point. They will host Q&As and have public demonstrations. The cannons will fire as 1812 Overture plays during the fireworks display.
Live music will be in Lowell Park from 5 to 10 p.m., and the fireworks will start soon after.
From 5 – 6:30 p.m., Stillwater brothers, Colin Campbell and the C-notes, will be playing the blues, followed by Rolling Stones cover band Tumblin Dice, who take the stage at 6:30 p.m.
In Pioneer Park, the St. Croix Jazz Orchestra will be playing in the bandshell from 7-9 p.m.
The city of Stillwater will shell out (with the help of donations) about $52,500 for the annual Fourth of July celebration. Music for the fireworks show will be simulcast on KLBB Radio, AM 1220.
