City of Olean Firefighters took over the local fireworks program in 2001. Prior to that, the Dempsey Club (City of Olean Police Department) ran the fireworks. The fireworks have been held in Bradner Stadium since the early 1960’s. The actual fireworks program, not just the ground displays, were shot inside the stadium. However, due to the rising safety issues, the fireworks are now being shot from Forness Park. The ground displays are still shot inside the stadium, but at a safe distance away from the spectators. Young Fireworks of Rochester, New York, now shoot our shows. A wide range of shells are shot in our programs. The shells range from 1” shells all the way up to 10” shells. The 10” shells are the largest shell that can be shot safely in our area.
