What better place is there to spend Independence Day than at an all-American county fair? Highlighting the day will be the traditional fireworks display, which will happen at approximately 9:00PM. The fireworks display is visible throughout the Fairgrounds, so as long as you're outside, there's no better place to watch!
We'll start the day with a patriotic Opening Ceremony about 9:30AM at the O'Brien Gate (Map location: H5). When the gates open about 10:00AM, there'll be plenty to do, including a great lineup of evening entertainment, such as the ever-popular, get-up-and-boogie band, KC and the Sunshine Band on our Grandstand Stage.
Fireworks will be at approximately 9:00PM. Plan to stay after the fireworks, and let the beach traffic clear. All of our exhibits, shopping halls and rides will stay open until midnight (except Kids' Best, which closes at 10:00PM.
