The Fourth of July fireworks display in Jerseyville is tonight.  It is a tradition that sees cars line Highway 67 in front of the American Legion grounds, where the display is shot off.  Police are generally cooperative with the extra traffic as long as no laws are being broken, according to event organizers.  

Angela Sullivan, Director of the Jerseyville Park & Recreation Department, says the first shell should explode just after dusk.

Sullivan comments

She says there will be food and drink available on the grounds tonight as well.  She adds that if you don't want to park along the highway or one of the side streets, there is plenty of room on-site to watch the show.
