Rotary Family Picnic presented by FC Bank
Gather the family and come on down to the Rotary Family Picnic and Fireworks Celebration on the 4th of July! Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy a family picnic on the lawn of Thomas Worthington High School (TWHS) with food, musical entertainment, Supergames and much more! The festivities on the lawn begin at 4:00 pm and continue until approximately 8:00 pm. Bring your own picnic or food is available to purchase from a variety of food trucks or hot off the grill. The Rotary Family Picnic is presented this year by FC Bank and organized by the Dublin-Worthington Rotary.
The fireworks blast off at 10:00 p.m. The display can be viewed either from the Family Picnic location on the front lawn of TWHS, or at the football stadium to the west of the high school.
Limited parking will be available at the TWHS parking lot to the west and north of the building. Handicap parking is available in the loop at the south entrance to the high school, or in the west lot on the northern end near the stadium. Because parking always fills up early, people are encouraged to park outside of the high school neighborhood area, carpool, walk or bike. The municipal lots in the downtown area will be available for people to park and walk to the high school grounds.
To maintain access for emergency vehicles and facilitate traffic movement it will be necessary to post certain streets “No Parking" on July 4th. Parking restrictions will be lifted following the event.
The areas to be posted "No Parking" are:
The access road behind the school stadium to the Flats will also be closed, as well as the Olentangy Bike Trail during the fireworks.
To facilitate the flow of traffic after the fireworks, North Street will become one way eastbound. The cooperation of area residents is greatly appreciated.
The Rotary Family Picnic and Fireworks takes place rain or shine. However, in the case of impending severe thunderstorms, lightening, and wind, City and safety officials will evaluate the circumstances and may determine the display be set off early or postponed. In the event the fireworks are postponed, the rain date is set as the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, September 1st. If a severe storm hits before or during the display, Thomas Worthington High School will be open as an emergency shelter. Announcements will be made over the PA system in the stadium and announced by emergency personnel in the family picnic areas. Updates will also be posted on the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
