Plans Underway for Fourth of July Weekend Celebration

Issued by Bowling Green Chamber

To celebrate this Independence Day, The Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce (BGCC), Visit BG Ohio (VBGO) and the Wood County Agriculture Society (WCAS) are working collaboratively on a weekend of fun activities for the community.   Each of these organizations has their specific roles in making this an exciting event and look to provide opportunities for others to get involved too.

The BGCC will once again organize and fundraise for the Annual Fireworks display on July 3rd.  The display will be launched in a secured area within the National Tractor Pulling Championships property.  This location provides for viewing from all around the fairgrounds area as well as into the surrounding neighborhoods.  The Bowling Green Community Band which provided a concert before the display for several years will be returning as a feature for the evening.  The BGCC will be seeking community support to help fund the event through sponsorships and donations as the primary funding source as well as volunteers for set up and grounds keeping the day of the event and clean up the day after the festivities.   Forms and signups are available on the BGCC website, or by calling their office at 419-353-7945.  

Expanding on the fireworks display to give the community even more reason to come out and be together, VBGO will organize a festival from 4 – 9 pm with inflatables and festival games from 4 – 9 pm which will be free to anyone who would like to participate.  VBGO will be seeking individuals and organizations who would like to be a part of  hosting a game or activity and provide prizes for the children.  They will also need additional volunteers for grounds keeping. Those interested in being involved with the festival should submit a request through or by email.

The BGCC and VBGO will promote their events together for July 3rd as BG BOOM Festival and Fireworks.  

The WCAS will be promoting their event as the All-American Celebration.  They will be organizing camping for the holiday weekend, family yard games and the food trucks  Anyone interested in camping or being a vendor should reach out to the WC Fair Office; 419-352-0441 or reserve camping on the WCAS website.

“Our organizations are excited to collaborate and expand on this event.  It puts an emphasis on a holiday that since 1776 has celebrated the birth of American independence.  It is meant to be a celebration that brings community together."

Watch for additional detail in the coming weeks, but SAVE THE DATE now for this event and consider how you might get involved.
