OROVILLE, Calif. - While crews continue to reconstruct at the Oroville Dam spectators will now see the fireworks show at the Thermalito Forebay* Wednesday evening.

State Park rangers say it was tough to change the venue for the annual show, but say they made the decision to relocate based on low lake levels.

They say the Forebay will be the new destination for the Fourth of July for the time being.

But some folks visiting the Forebay are just enjoying the holiday.

“It feels really good it’s nice to see so many people coming together at this lake it's usually not that busy here. It’s really fun though I really like seeing this many people come together,” said Jodi Reich, a visitor.

Park rangers say there will be plenty of parking for the event.

Lightning-caused fires will be a concern over the next few days as thunderstorms are in the forecast. We stay warm to begin next week but cool into the 70s by Wednesday.
