Fireworks will shoot from the West Sacramento waterfront up into the skies above Old Sacramento tonight, in a 10-minute show at 9 p.m. and a nearly-15 minute show scheduled for midnight.

The shows are in celebration of New Year’s Eve, and sponsored by www.sacramento365.com and the Sacramento Convention & Visitor’s Bureau.

The midnight show will be set to music broadcast simultaneously on FM 96.9, The Eagle.

The fireworks are intended for viewing from Old Sac, but will no doubt be seen from vantage points near Raley Field and River Walk Park in West Sacramento as well. Pay-parking will be available in Old Sacramento and near Raley Field.

The Tower Bridge will be closed to vehicles for safety from 7:30 p.m. to midnight. It will also be closed to pedestrians from 15 minutes before and after each show.

The fireworks will be complimented by a number of concerts and activities in Old Sac tonight from 6:30 p.m to 12:30 a.m.
