Name a Firework to Help Build North Liberty’s Next Stage

Kickstart your Independence Day celebrations with a fireworks display on Monday evening, July 3, 2023, in Penn Meadows Park.

The display will launch at 9:30 p.m. from Owen Skelley Field (formally known as Babe Ruth Field) in the southwest corner of Penn Meadows Park, located at 170 N. Dubuque St. Viewers are welcome and encouraged to arrive to the park early to play on the play structures and enjoy a picnic, however there will not be any organized programming or on-site food sales available. Alcohol is prohibited.

Name a firework

While the show is free to attend, it is also a fundraiser for the City’s Building North Liberty’s Next Stage campaign. You can support our plans to finish Centennial Park to be the magnetic, multifaceted community gathering space we’ve heard a loud-and-clear demand for by naming a firework. Up to 100 individual shells included in the July 3 display are available to be named for a significant other, child, friend, or whomever a donor desires for a minimum donation of $50.

To claim a firework, follow the button below to donate through the campaign’s fund at the Community Foundation of Johnson County. Your minimum donation of $50 to name a firework is eligible for tax deduction. The online giving platform is used to collect all campaign contributions, so please indicate your interest in dedicating a firework by writing “Firework” in the additional notes field and completing the “In Honor Of” section so we know the name to associate with the firework.

The City will mail a certificate of the firework naming to the donor the week of June 26, which will indicate which firework in the show’s sequence has been dedicated. Names will not be announced during the event on July 3, but a list of fireworks and their associated names will be published on this post and on the City’s Facebook page prior to the event.

Requests to name a firework must be received by end of day Sunday, June 25.

Be the one to launch the show

One lucky firework-naming donor will be randomly selected to launch the display. Under the supervision of licensed pyrotechnics staff, the chosen person — or the person of the winner’s choosing — will stand at a safe distance and start the show with the push of a button at 9:30 p.m. on July 3.
