East Grand Rapids 4th of July Celebration


The 4th of July is an annual celebration in East Grand Rapids as well as an all day community affair!  The day begins with a parade of various school and community organizations showing their community pride.  Friendly reminder fireworks or sparklers are not allowed on City or School property at any time.


Immediately following the parade, the fun begins at John Collins Park on Reeds Lake.  Concessions will be available along with multiple attractions for kids of all ages, including inflatables, games, clown shows and air brush tattoos.

The afternoon in the park is highlighted by a water ski show on Reeds Lake and Drummunity leading into a near-twilight musical performance by the Grand Rapids Federation of Muscians.  At dusk, a fantastic fireworks display over the water completes the day!

Each year's event is unique as different activities are added.  Complete information is usually available by mid-June.  You can download the schedule from this site when available or contact the Parks & Recreation office at 949-1750.  Please mark your calendars to come and join the fun!
