CONNEAUT — The city of Conneaut’s holiday fireworks display will start at 10:15 p.m. today at the lakefront.

The show is part of the Fourth of July Festival at Lakeview Park, which concludes tonight. Also on the schedule includes “Minute-to-Win-It” games for adults and children (1 p.m.); finals of the Dairy Queen Conneaut Idol singing competition (8 p.m.); and performances by “Larry, Darryl and Darryl and Cheryl” (3 p.m.) and “Scarecrow,” a John Cougar Mellencamp tribute band (9 p.m. and 11 p.m.).

Thousands of people are expected for the fireworks show. To avoid congestion, Conneaut Police Chief Charles Burlingham urges everyone to show up early and have patience when leaving the area after the display. Fourteen police officers will be working tonight to help manage traffic and the crowd, he said.
