This city-wide celebration and all day community affair will be held on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. The celebration starts with a parade at noon. The parade is keeping the new route formed last year:
It will start at the intersection of Sherman St./Wealthy St. and continue east on Wealthy St., turning left on Lakeside Dr., ending at Reeds Lake Blvd.
Following the parade is a party in John Collins Park on Reeds Lake, 750 Lakeside Drive. Kids of all ages will enjoy musical entertainment, inflatable’s, games, air brush tattoos, balloon animals, and concessions by Shafer concessions and What the Truck. Highlighting the celebration is a water ski show on Reeds Lake. In the evening enjoy a musical performance by Hark Up that plays through the night until the start of the fireworks. At dusk, approximately 10:15 pm, a fantastic fireworks display over the water completes the day!
