Independence Day Spectacular
Neighbors and friends gather at City Park each July to celebrate our freedom in the most patriotic way.
Residents engage in friendly competition for the coveted blue ribbon in challenges like the Homemade Apple Pie contest, Homemade Ice Cream contest, Watermelon Seed Spitting contest and the Hot Dog Eating contest. Children play in the foam pit, slide down the slip-n-slide, and jump on the Velcro wall.
The evening’s festivities conclude with a spectacular 30-minute fireworks show.
The activities pause mid-evening for the Beach Ball Drop. Thousands of hands raise in the air as children try to catch one of the hundreds of beach balls that fall from the sky, just before the headliner band kicks off.
