For the July 4th Weekend the City of Collinsville is sponsoring a big fireworks display beginning at dark on Sunday, July 3rd. The City is also holding a free swim for Collinsville residents at the City Pool on Sunday, July 3 from 1 PM to 7 PM.

Park goers are encouraged to come early to choose their viewing location, bring a picnic lunch and plan on a swim for free. A full complement of City Pool Staff will be on hand as well as Fire Department Personnel to direct traffic and assist with the fireworks.

The City Pool will be closed on Monday, July 4th.
