TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson firework festivities will cause some traffic trouble for drivers on the west side, as officials prepare for the annual "A" Mountain holiday show.

South Sentinel Peak Road, the street leading up to the mountain, will shut down at noon Thursday and reopen at noon on Saturday.

In addition, Mission Road will close between Starr Pass Boulevard on Friday between 5 and 6 p.m. for more set up procedures.

The "A" Mountain firework show should kick off around 9:15 p.m. on Friday, July 4, according to The City of Tucson.

If you'd like to enjoy the show, The City of Tucson recommends heading to Tucson Convention Center's Parking Lot B. This is located on Cushing Street between Granada Avenue and Church Avenue. The TCC's Parking Lot C is another place to observe. This is on Granada Avenue between Broadway Boulevard and Cushing Street.

Food vendors will be available in these lots between 7 and 9 on Friday night. They'll have burgers, hot dogs, ice cream and various refreshments.

A parking lot will also be available for firework observers on 22nd Street near the I-10 Frontage Road.

For more information, including ADA accommodations at these locations, call the Tucson Convention Center at 791-4101.
