Celebrate Ankeny Fireworks

Celebrate Ankeny will feature a fireworks show above Prairie Ridge Pond on Saturday, July 11 beginning at 9:15 p.m. The fireworks are presented by Karl Chevrolet and are choreographed to music that will broadcast on KJJY 92.5 FM. Volunteers will hand out Firework Fun Packs sponsored by John Deere Des Moines Works to the first 500 cars. Attendees can park at one of three parking lots near Ankeny SummerFest grounds and watch from within their vehicle or in the parking spot next to their driver’s side. Attendees can also park at Prairie Ridge Middle School and walk to Ankeny SummerFest grounds to sit and enjoy the show. Social distancing and safety measures will be in place and the Ankeny Area Chamber urges people to enjoy the fireworks show responsibly.
