LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 2, 2018) — University of Kentucky Transportation Services invites the campus community to watch Lexington’s Independence Day fireworks display from the top deck of the South Limestone Garage (PS #5). The proximity of the garage to the downtown area offers a close view of the fireworks display while avoiding the crowds and congestion of the downtown festivities.

Anyone possessing a valid UK parking permit may park in the facility free of charge to view the fireworks from the upper level.

Those planning to attend the fireworks viewing can enter from the South Limestone gates or the Upper Street gates. The garage will be open all day. The top deck lights will be turned off during the display to enhance the viewing experience.

Alcoholic beverages, grills, open fires, and all fireworks, including sparklers, are prohibited. No animals are allowed, with the exception of service animals. To promote a safe and positive viewing experience for everyone, the University of Kentucky Police Department will be present to enforce these restrictions.
