Redding, Calif. -

No other way to say it: Redding's fireworks show creates human gridlock at the Civic Auditorium.

Redding is expecting fifteen thousand people to come watch.   That makes it the largest fireworks show between Sacramento and Seattle. The redding police department is asking that people are respectful and leave dogs at home.

Parking is first come first serve, so get there early.

Once the lots fill up Redding Police Department will close the Highway 44 Northbound exit.

The Sundial Bridge and part of the Sacramento River Trail will be closed between 8pm and midnight.
