There will be an onsite DJ throughout the festivities playing the hits and getting guests excited for the patriotic celebration.
Each evening at 9:30pm, guests will be able to enjoy an amazing firework presentation. The 15 minute presentation will be visible to guests from anywhere throughout the property, and orchestrated to patriotic music.
The park is open from 10:30am to 10:00pm each night during Fourth Fest. The fireworks are shot off from the River’s Edge Picnic Grove. If you plan on staying for the firework show, we suggest watching them from the hill next to Goliath or from the ramp to DC Superhero Adventures. Both spots are popular, so you might want to get to the spots early to make sure you get the best seat in the park!
We’re extremely happy to see this event getting bigger and bigger each year!
