Firecracker Festival

Each year on the 4th of July at the Sports Complex, Edinburgh Park and Recreation is proud to have our annual Firecracker Festival! A band is playing music in the shelter house as our residents begin to arrive. In the distance, clinks and clangs can be heard as someone is tossing a ring to win a pop, and funny jokes are told as people pass by our Kentucky Corn Hole. Bouncy houses are filled with the laughter and squeals of those jumping in them. EEK! and GROSS! are yelled as contestants stick their hands in a giant nose in Pick-A-Winner, and sniper skills are tested as players shoot down the opponent miniature army men in our Rubber Band Shootout. Little ones grin as they show the bugs or dinosaurs they dug up in Sand Adventure. Attendees can register to participate in water balloon fights, home run derby and pie eating contests! But the best is saved for last as the sun sets and the sky is lit up by a beautiful array of colors and a loud boom that symbolizes the sounds that were made on our country's way to freedom. As the fireworks fade into the night sky, we are left with a sense of pride for both our community and our country.
