OGDEN, Utah – More than 20,000 are expected to attend the annual Lindquist Family Symphony Pops and Fireworks at Weber State University July 14, 2019.

Now in its 41st year, the celebration, initiated and sponsored by the Lindquist family of Ogden, is a longstanding tradition in Northern Utah.

The New American Philharmonic, directed my Mark Emile, will provide a free 60-minute concert beginning at 9 p.m. at the Ada Lindquist Plaza. The performance will include a selection of patriotic music, featuring Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture.” A battery of 16 cannons provided by Cannoneers of the Wasatch will accompany the “1812 Overture.” The group has provided the cannons each year for the concert since it started in 1978.

At approximately 10 p.m., attendees will enjoy one of the largest fireworks displays in Utah, accompanied by the symphony.

Several food trucks will be on hand to sell drinks and refreshments.

On-campus parking will be available, but limited. The roundabouts off Harrison Boulevard and Dixon Drive will be closed to traffic. Access to campus will be through Edvalson Street, Skyline Drive, and Birch and Taylor avenues.

Guests traveling in motor homes or larger vehicles are encouraged to park on the east side of campus near Stewart Stadium. The Dee Events Center also offers additional parking.

To minimize damage to the grounds, attendees may not leave blankets or chairs to save spaces before July 13 at 6 p.m. Items placed on the lawn prior to that time will be removed. Tarps, stakes and tent pegs are not allowed due to safety concerns and will be removed. No personal fireworks or pets of any kind will be allowed on campus. Spectators are asked to clean up their area and drive with courtesy and caution following the event.
