***Fireworks Display Only*** (this year)
Because the City’s waterfront parks Wallace Books and Liberty are undergoing major construction and are currently closed, there will not be an accompanying festival. All are encouraged to find a comfortable spot, nook, blanket, car seat, boat seat or pub seat of their choice to watch the firework spectacular over Lake Henderson. Please be respectful of private property and public spaces when finding your viewing spot. Let freedom ring and look for this event to return to the parks in 2020 with a bang!
