4th of July Festival

Celebrate America’s birthday with us during our annual 4th of July Festival, a two-day celebration taking place on July 3rd and July 4th. Both days will feature live music, as well as fireworks over our man-made whitewater river. Every seat is a good seat to view the stunning fireworks display, but we recommend guests arrive early to pick a spot.
