Woodlake Kiwanis Club holds 25th anniversary of free fireworks show on Saturday, July 3
WOODLAKE – After a year of canceling events, Woodlake is about to explode … with fun activities for the community.
The Woodlake Kiwanis Club announced last week it will hold its annual July 3rd Blast from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 3 at Miller Brown Park in downtown Woodlake. The event was canceled last year due to state guidelines about events and large gatherings. In 2019, over 5,000 people attended the event, leading organizers to believe this year’s event might be even larger after the one-year hiatus. Event co-chair Linda LaFleur said the event has already received great support from sponsors and the Kiwanis Club is ramping up its fireworks.
“This year, the fireworks display will be the largest yet,” LaFleur said.
This year not only marks the first time the event has been held in two years abut also the 25th anniversary of the free event organized by the Kiwanis Club.
“This free event would not have been possible all these years without the community, our sponsors, and the hundreds of volunteer hours,” LaFleur said.
In past years, the park was filled with participants enjoying time at the Horseshoe Tournament sponsored by the Home Grown Project, youngsters having a blast in the totally free “Kid Zone,” families enjoying summer specialties at the food booths, and folks just hanging out with family and friends.
In addition to tradition events in the park, the Woodlake Plaza across the street will serve as the venue for a Kids’ Zone with carnival-style games, water fun, face painting, balloon animals, and a “Selfie Station” complete with patriotic props. Kids in attendance will also be able to hop on a free train ride on the street between the park and plaza.
“We are excited to offer an awesome July 3rd Blast in Woodlake for 2021!” LaFleur said.
