The 18th annual Southern Highlands Community Fireworks show is still on schedule for Memorial Day.

Pivoting this year to a socially distant format, the fireworks will originate and be displayed high from the hilltop at Olympia Sports Park.

While the park will be closed to the public, the height of the fireworks has been increased this year for families and residents in the Southern Highlands area to see and enjoy while at home.

This year the community has partnered with popular local radio station Mix 94.1 to broadcast the fireworks and synchronized music, and radio personality Heather Collins will present the event to the community and beyond via Facebook Live.

Maintaining its commitment to supporting its long-standing community partner Operation Warmheart, a GoFundMe page has been set up and the public is encouraged to make a donation to the private, nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to local airmen and their families at Creech and Nellis Air Force Base.

The fireworks show will be held on May 25 at Olympia Sports Park located on 4885 Starr Hills Avenue at 8:15 p.m.
