If you’ve heard the buzz, it’s true. The City of Mar­i­on is bring­ing the fire­works dis­play back to Mat­ter Park for this year’s Fourth of July celebration!

On Tues­day, July 3rd, the City with sup­port from Friends of the Gar­dens, will wel­come back nation­al pop star, singer/​songwriter and piano prodi­gy, Jon McLaugh­lin, as the head­lin­ing act of the evening along with emerg­ing coun­try star, Jessie Brown, and well-known home­town band, the Posse. This free com­mu­ni­ty event will fea­ture lots of fes­tiv­i­ties in the Gar­dens of Mat­ter Park (& the Mead­ow) includ­ing a kid’s car­ni­val, yard games & activ­i­ties, fes­tive sum­mer food, and cool refreshments.

May­or Jess Alum­baugh explained hav­ing the fire­works in Mat­ter Park will pro­vide an oppor­tu­ni­ty for the com­mu­ni­ty to gath­er and enjoy the acres of green­space that the Park offers. In the past, I’ve seen fam­i­lies sit­ting in cars to watch the fire­works near the down­town area. This change will hope­ful­ly pro­mote a con­tin­ued sense of com­mu­ni­ty which has been grow­ing through­out the city.”

The Gar­dens’ Pro­grams & Events Direc­tor, Julie Fauser, said she real­ly want­ed the fire­works to be back in the park. There’s lots of space, peo­ple can bring their own yard games, pic­nics & blan­kets, and come togeth­er a lit­tle more than in sep­a­rate down­town lots.”

The July 3rd fire­works dis­play in Mat­ter Park will start after dusk, last­ing 25 min­utes, and can best be viewed in the Gar­dens as well as in and around the ten­nis court area and across N. Mat­ter Park Rd. in the grass.

The Gar­dens of Mat­ter Park address: 1 Mat­ter Park Cir., Mar­i­on, IN 46952.
