STONE MOUNTAIN, GA (CBS46) -

Stone Mountain Park was forced to close its entrance gate hours before its popular fireworks show Friday, according to a release from Stone Mountain Park police.

Police said the gates closed early due to the park being near full capacity with few available parking spots.

The gates closed at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon, which is the earliest the gates have closed on the Fourth of July in many years, according to authorities.

Stone Mountain Park hosted a laser show and fireworks at 9:30 p.m. Friday night.
