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.
