11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Saturday, July 4;

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Science and art are the stars during these red white and blue days of family fun! Discover the secret ingredients that put the oohs and ahhs in fireworks; test your rocket design and send a mini-missile soaring; create patriotic art; and more!  You’ll be the hit of the parade with a light-up hat and noise maker you invent yourself! On Saturday evening, leave the car parked here and take the short stroll downtown for festivities and fireworks.

Thanks to our presenting sponsor Meijer!
