Be part of Marion's Independence Day fireworks celebration; an idea that surfaced through the ImagiNEXT community visioning process.
On Wednesday, July 3, Marion will host an Independence Day fireworks display, called Fireworks & Fireflies. This free event will take place on the eve of the holiday at the beautiful Klopfenstein Amphitheater at Lowe Park.
Enjoy live music by The Bamboozlers before the fireworks show. Family-friendly activities, including patriotic face painting, a balloon artist and life-size games will be located throughout the park. The fun begins at 6 p.m. leading up to the fireworks at dusk.
Attendees will be able to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, beverages (including alcoholic beverages) and food. Food will also be available for purchase through local food trucks. Attendees are asked to leave sparklers, fireworks, and other flammable items at home. Please no dogs or other pets.
A number of sponsorship opportunities are currently available.
Broad financial support will help ensure that we can continue to provide this type of programming for the community. Multiple sponsorship levels are available. The deadline to participate is April 15.
