The Moorhead Business Association’s 5656 Ohh and Ahh fireworks are expected to be blast! While Minnesota State University Moorhead has passed the torch on this decades long tradition, the fireworks will be still hosted at MSUM’s Nemzek Field on MSUMs campus.

The ever talented, Post Traumatic Funk Syndrome hits the stage at 9:00pm, but you can arrive as early as 8:00pm. This event is family friendly and FREE for everyone, but bring some pocket money if you’re interested in the delicious concessions available on site, hosted by Chapter 941 of the Vietnam Veterans of America! To keep the fireworks safe and fun for everyone, no alcohol or firearms will not be permitted on campus.

Parking will be available at all MSUM parking lots and the police department and volunteers will be directing traffic to ensure it runs smoothly. Accessible parking is available on 17th Street out side of Nemzek, in the lots directly North of Nemzek Field and the lot directly West of Nemzek.
