Crowds will fill the Jackson County Expo this Thursday for “BoomFest”
Drivers in the area can anticipate delays as vehicles leave after the fireworks display. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies urge drivers to plan ahead and to be patient during the end-of-show egress.
The Jackson County Expo is located at 1 Peninger Road, Central Point – near Interstate 5, exit 33. Gates for “BoomFest” open at 3:00 p.m. with the fireworks display set to begin at approximately 9:40 p.m. The family-friendly event includes activities and entertainment.
Parking is available in Expo lots only; vehicles are not allowed to park or stop along Peninger Road or Interstate 5. The area will be patrolled and vehicles found in violation will be towed.
Following the fireworks display, Peninger Road will be closed to incoming traffic for over an hour to allow vehicles to exit the Expo parking lots. This is an important planning note for parents – due to the one-way traffic, vehicles will not be able to drive toward the Expo to pick up children or others after the fireworks.
Traffic will be directed one-way in both lanes on Peninger Road for vehicles leaving the Expo. Vehicles leaving the north parking lots will be routed north toward Upton Road. Vehicles leaving the south parking lots will be directed south toward Pine Street. Traffic signals at nearby intersections will be adjusted to allow vehicles to leave the event more efficiently.
In addition to assisting with traffic control, JCSO deputies will be focused on spotting impaired drivers. Deputies suggest carpooling and designating a sober driver for those who plan to consume alcohol at the event. They also remind everyone that smoking marijuana in public is prohibited by state law.
“BoomFest” is sponsored by the City of Central Point, Cow Creek Tribe of Indians, and several other local organizations and businesses. Click on the following link for more information: https://www.attheexpo.com/Page.asp?NavID=492 .
There are plenty of ways to celebrate Independence Day, on the Fourth of July, from barbecues to picnics. In other words, most people want to spend the day outdoors with friends and family. Spend it at the Expo.
