The City of Fremont will have a Fourth of July fireworks show this year at Terra State Community College, Safety Service Director Kenneth Frost announced Friday.

"We're really looking forward to this show. It will bigger and better than anything we've had in the past," Frost said.

The event will be on Terra State's grounds as a drive-in only gathering, according to a city release.

Frost said spectators will not be permitted to exit their vehicles.

This will be monitored with onsite security provided by the Fremont Police Department, Sandusky County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio Highway Patrol, which also will be assisting with traffic.

Frost said organizers are still working on a time when residents can begin showing up at Terra State for the Fourth of July event.

That will be announced at a later date, Frost said.

He said there are more than 1,000 parking spaces on the Terra State campus.
Residents also should be able to park at spots near Otis Elementary School and other locations to see the fireworks, Frost said.

"You'll pretty much be able to see it anywhere on Fremont's west side," Frost said, adding that the city picked Terra State specifically to promote social distancing.

Frost said the fireworks display should parallel what the city has put on for previous Fourth of July holidays.

Indiana-based Melrose Pyrotechnics and Ken Dumminger are working together to produce the fireworks show.
