You don’t have to go far from home to celebrate America’s birthday.

The 12th annual community celebration at Lake Meridian Park, 14800 S.E. 272nd St., features a variety of fun and free activities from noon to 11 p.m. July 4, including a large fireworks display over the lake at 10 p.m.

Groups lined up to perform so far on the main stage include Submotive and The Beatniks. The activities include watermelon and pie eating contests as well as a boat parade and classic car display.

The event attracts thousands of people, so free off-site parking and shuttle service is offered from Kent Fire Station No. 75 and Kentwood High School.
