Get ready to impress the park patrons this firework season when you share the exact moment the sun is expected to set and the fiery shower of light will hit the skies.

Can't make it out to see a live display this year?  Enjoy a private fireworks show with the Amazon Alexa skill "Fireworks Display(Audio and Visual)."
