NORFOLK - The return of an annual fireworks display means a portion of a popular walking trail in Norfolk will be shutting down.

Big Bang Boom says the Skyview Lake path will be closed from Wednesday June 26th at 12:00 PM until sometime in the afternoon June 30th.

Boomfest organizers say the closure will be from straight north of Williams Street on the west end of the lake to the curve on the southeast end of the lake.

All foot traffic must stay outside of this marked area. Violators can be ticketed.

Organizers say this is done to protect everyone from any injury in case of an accident.

In addition, Maple Avenue from 18th Street into and along the roadway of the park will have no parking signs posted to allow emergency vehicles to enter and exit the park safely.
