Celebrate Labor Day in Butner with fireworks
Posted on August 30, 2021
BUTNER —Southern Granville County wasn’t treated to a fireworks show for the Fourth of July this year. It will get one on Labor Day weekend.
The city of Creedmoor and town of Butner are joining together to host a fireworks display on Friday, Sept. 3, at Lake Holt, Old Highway 75, Butner. Gates open at 5 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. Attendees must arrive before 7:45 p.m.
The town of Stem, city of Oxford and Granville County are giving support to the show.
Parking and security will be organized by officers of Butner Public Safety, Creedmoor and Oxford police departments, Granville County Sheriff’s Office, Creedmoor and Stem fire departments and the Junior Volunteer Fire Department.
Vehicles won’t be allowed to leave until after the show ends. A number of events will entertain during the day, including a DJ and concession food.
Visitors are encouraged to take lawn chairs or blankets, along with a flashlight. Alcohol and open flames are not allowed, and pets are discouraged because of the loud fireworks.
There is no rain date. The show will take place in light rain, but will be canceled if inclement weather prevents the fireworks from being launched.
More information will be posted on Creedmoor’s and Butner’s websites.
