Festival Layout


The PPG Fireworks Festival layout uses nearly all of the 700,000 square foot Packard Proving Grounds property, including grass lots, driveways, the paved track, and the middle building. Restrooms are available in the Banquet Hall (middle building), near the stage and outside in the Food Court. 

Parking Lot: Dark red designated areas are parking for guests, exhibitors and volunteers as marked. You will be directed to the appropriate parking area upon entry. Public parking is available outside the gates in the front and south lots. Preferred parking inside the fence is available for families with small children and other special needs. It offers the closest proximity to the guest areas, but may not be the first to exit.   

Guest Areas: Blue areas provide seating/standing areas for guests and include the following areas: the Paved Track (west end, best viewing), Main Lawn (better viewing) and Medians (good viewing between trees). All areas have great views of the fireworks areas over the northwest corner of the PPG property. Please reserve and limit space use (with blankets and chairs) for your family/group to a 10'x10' area (100 sq/ft) to accommodate the 700+ families/groups attending.

Exhibits: Exhibits can be found along the north side of the lot in the Kids Korner and on either side of the pedestrian entranceway south of the west (largest) building. 

Kids Korner: The Kids Korner is designated by an orange section located along the north side of the property. It includes inflatables for kids under 100 lbs. as well as a 25' tower climb and large area for "retro" games for kids of all ages. 

Food Court: The Food Court is located inside the Banquet Hall (middle building) and between all the west and middle buildings. It includes food trucks and concession stands, picnic tables, dining tables and trash/recycling bins.

Stage: The stage is located at the west end of the west building.
