Independence Day Fireworks

large fireworks in yellows and reds

July 3 from 6:00 p.m. until the close of the fireworks.  (IF it rains on July 3, Ames' fireworks will be moved to July 5.  In that case, unfortunately Reiman Gardens will NOT be open late for fireworks.)

Reiman Gardens is open all day on July 3rd from 9:00 a.m. to the conclusion of the fireworks display which is across the street from the Gardens. The Young Professionals of Ames, the City of Ames and Iowa State University is excited to present the fireworks.

Visitors may bring their folding chairs, coolers with food and drinks. No fireworks or sparklers are allowed inside the Gardens.
