National park officials invite public to see fireworks on top of monument

Posted: Updated:
There are several places to watch fireworks this weekend in the valley but one place is inviting the public to watch them from an unique bird's eye-view.

Rangers with the Scotts Bluff National Monument are ready to host their annual Fourth of July celebrations in Gering Friday night.

Visitors will be able to walk to the top of the monument or take a shuttle bus in order to watch fireworks as they're launched throughout the valley.

Park Ranger Jontae Koke says spectators cannot bring their own fireworks onto the park but are still encouraged to have a great time watching from about the valley.

She says seeing fireworks from the monument is a great way to celebrate the nation's independence.

"Fourth of July, you're celebrating your nation, you're celebrating your country and why not do it at a place that's your own. It's your national park. Come up here and experience your national park from a different perspective," she said.

There's no admission fee and the trails will stay open until 10 p.m.
