PLYMOUTH — Road America race track is scheduled to host the largest fourth of July firework show in Sheboygan County, according to the Plymouth Review.

The show is called "Road America Fire Fest – One Community, One Purpose," and begins at 9:30 p.m. on July 4.

Road America is the ideal place to host a firework show, as it provides 640 acres for visitors to social distance while enjoying the show.

“This event is a wonderful way to express the hope and unity of our local communities in a safe manner,” said Jackie Jarvis, Plymouth Advancement Association Vice President.

The race track will be limiting the number of visitors allowed to the fire fest, in order to allow social distancing. Because of the limitation, Road America is urging locals to reserve their tickets early in order to secure your spot.

Tickets are $20 per vehicle and can be purchased here.Road America's main gate off of highway 67 will open at 7 p.m. Visitors must print their passes in advance so they can be scanned at the entrance.

Attendees can then watch the show from their vehicles, or lay blankets and chairs out on the lawn.

Proceeds from the show will go towards the Sheboygan County Food Bank, the Plymouth Fire Department, and the Elkhart Lake Fire Department. Visitors can make additional donations online or at the event.

In the Plymouth Review, Mike Kertscher, Road America’s President and General Manager said, “We are very proud to be supporting this effort because this is our community and we are all working together to help everyone enjoy an American tradition during these difficult times while giving back to help others."

Road America's Paddock shop will be open during the event, and concessions will be available. Road America is also allowing on-site camping for visitors.
