This popular festival offers plenty of fun for the whole family, including face painting, games, waterslides, and a bungee ride. Three bands — The Bandulus, Gratzi, and Burning Sky Band — will perform live from 6 p.m. You can also stop by one of the many food trucks or dine at a Village Shops restaurant to fill up before the fireworks display. The dazzling show begins at dusk, capping off a festive day of food, family, and freedom.

Date and time: 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on July 4. Shuttles begin at 4 p.m. Visit the city’s website for more information.
