The free event features family entertainment, including live music, children’s activities, food and drinks and culminates with a classic fireworks display.
“It’s a pleasure to host the Splash at Lake Meridian Park for what has become a great community tradition,” said Kent Parks’ Cultural Programs Coordinator Mark Hendrickson. “It remains a great family event and a fantastic venue to celebrate Independence Day.”

The fireworks display starts at 10 p.m. Sponsored by the city’s Parks Department and the Lake Meridian Community Association, the show is approximately 20 minutes long.
