Maiden Dixie, a high-energy country rock band, will kick off the fun at the Fourth of July Hometown Celebration at M Health Fairview Sports Center!
The music begins at 5:30 p.m. Starting at 6 p.m., kids can jump in bounce houses and everyone can grab some tasty treats at one of many food trucks, including GoBBQ, Hydration Shuttle, KCM EggRolls, Kona Ice, Mik Mart Ice Cream, Snack Shack, State Fair Cookie Co. and more! Families can bring a football or a Frisbee and enjoy the evening on some green space or play at Madison's Place playground and the free outdoor splash pad (open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.). In addition, meet Mayor Anne Burt and members of the Woodbury City Council near the food trucks before the fireworks.
The traditional fireworks display begins at 10 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early and bring their own seating and blankets. Please remember that while sparklers are legal in Minnesota, they are prohibited in city parks.
Special thanks to Horton Orthodontics (Kids' Zone) and Floor & Decor (fireworks grand finale) for sponsoring this year's event.
