A series of events will be held this year for kids from about 6 to 8 p.m., sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department. Games, such as a sack race, an egg race, a three-legged race, a hula hoop contest, as well as a softball and Frisbee throw, are some of the events children ages 6 to 15 can participate in. There will be prizes for the first, second and third-place winners in each event.
"It gives kids something to do," Snapp said. "It (also) gives Mom and Dad a couple of hours of peace."
The Bikes and BBQ cook-off has been moved to the Fourth of July as well. It will start in the morning and continue throughout the day, with the judging at 6 p.m.
As part of Bikes & BBQ, a Clark County fighters' fundraiser to help victims of house fires, there will be a motorcycle show at the park beginning at 6 p.m.
Once again, the firefighters will have a helicopter fly-over and the aircraft will land at Lykins Park during the Fourth celebration.
The musical entertainment will begin at 5 p.m. and last until the fireworks start.
"It's local entertainment but it's good local stuff," Snapp said.
The first band to perform will be Oldscool from 5-5:40 p.m. Following them will be Velvet Water from 5:55-6:35 p.m. 27 South will hit the stage next from 6:50-7:30 p.m. Perry Williams and the Gator Babies will perform from 7:45-8:30 p.m. The headliners will be The Classics. They will begin at 8:45 and perform until the fireworks start. The Classics have been a staple of this event for years.
"They do a little bit of everything," Snapp said. "Something for everybody."
During The Classics' performance, the parachutist is expected to return to the celebration. In dramatic style, he will be jumping from a plane during one of the songs.
The fireworks should begin at 10 p.m. and last approximately 30 minutes.
