Each ticket includes one seat on the Museum’s balconies. Seating is first come, first served. Carry-ins of alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
This is a fun fly and all are welcome to participate! Our goal is to fill the sky with as many kites as possible. Times from 11:00 am until 6:30 PM, then 7:30 PM until the fireworks start at 9:25 pm. We have set aside a huge area of Veterans Park just for kitefliers. So fly a kite and get the best seats in the house for the greatest fireworks show on Earth. Well...in my opinion, of course. Now understand that traffic and parking are a real mess for this event, so come early and don't plan on leaving until after the fireworks are finished at 10:15 pm. In other words, plan your whole day in the park. It's a blast.
EVENTS LISTED BELOW ARE ON JULY 4TH-
