Event Entertainment:

Celebrate Independence Day with us at Sweetwater Park where there will be activities for all to enjoy, including a spectacular fireworks display to cap off the night! We kick-off the day with our annual kids bike parade at the corner of Club Terrace Road and Lone Tree Parkway. Decorate your bike with red, white and blue and help lead us into the park where you will be met with activities, food, music and more! Everyone will want to visit our artist corner where you can make yourself over with a new wacky hairdo, a glitter tattoo or an artistically painted design on your cheek! If you’re looking for adventure take a turn on the jump off, race through the obstacle courses, slink your way through the cave of confusion, cool off on the California water slide or test your skills at the double shot basketball hoop and first down throwing challenge. Take a stroll through the big top tent and play a game of ring toss or skeeroll, and don’t forget to commemorate the day with a family photo in our photo booth! Entertainment from the Yellow Designs BMX Stunt Team with a newly added skills course for the kids and music from Funk Knuf and headliner Pg.6ix Band.
