On Wed., July 3rd, 2019, the City of Marion will bring back fireworks in Matter Park with live music and festivities for the whole family. The event will begin in and around the Gardens of Matter Park at 5pm with a DJ, food and sweet-treat vendors, and a kids’ carnival with inflatable play space and yard games. At 7pm, Jessie Brown will kick off live music then join a larger group of artists making up the band, “When Country Went Pop.” After they end around dusk, fireworks will end the night with a bang! They will be set off behind the tennis courts.
Marion Transit will provide free air-conditioned shuttle service from 5:30pm until after the fireworks. They will take patrons from the lot of the old Sears at Five Points Mall into the Gardens entrance.
“This event gives the community a chance to enjoy the amenities of Matter Park while providing a gathering ground to spend time with family and friends for the ‘4th of July’. This year promises to be even better with more music & entertainment, plus food and fireworks,” stated Mayor Jess Alumbaugh.
This is a free, family-friendly event provided by the City of Marion. Enjoy food & drinks from vendors or pack your own picnic. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs to comfortably enjoy the night. Remember, personal fireworks including sparklers are not allowed in Matter Park.
