Named for O’Fallon’s inspirational Heritage & Freedom Fest coordinator, Jena “Dusty” Mielke, O’Fallon’s fireworks displays will be among the biggest and brightest in the area. Get comfortable – bring a lawn chair or blanket to the festival grounds and relax to one of the biggest fireworks shows in the county,

This spectacular show takes off at 10:15 p.m. on July 3 and 9:30 p.m. on July 4, so round up the family, find a patch of grass and get ready to be amazed by the Jena "Dusty" Mielke Fireworks Spectacular!

Please note: T.R. Hughes Boulevard and Cool Springs Industrial Drive will temporarily close 30 min before and after fireworks shows.

Patrons of all ages will be memorized by the display of color and sound.
The best seat in the house is at the Ozzie Smith Sports Park festivals grounds.
