Celebrate Independence Day at Sweetwater Park where there will be a kid’s bike parade, numerous interactive inflatables and games, music, and a spectacular fireworks display for all to enjoy! Some of this year’s exciting attractions include the artist corner where you can make yourself over with a new wacky hairdo, a glitter tattoo or an artistically painted design on your cheek, the adventure zone where you can do a cliff style jump onto what feels like a fluffy cloud, obstacle courses, the battle zone, and a slackline skills park with performances by Rocky Mountain Slackline.  Food trucks will be onsite as well as a beverage trailer provided by the Highlands Ranch Band Booster Club to help raise funds for their program. Musical entertainment will be provided by Chris Buehrle and headliner, MarchFourth Marching Band, a group that delivers a joy-inducing, foot-stomping, booty-shaking journey that defies categorization.
