Another large community activity is the Lansing Independence Day Celebration, traditionally held on the Friday before the 4th of July. The event begins at 6:00 pm with inflatables & rides for the kids along with lots of food and beverages.
New this year: A Beer Tent will be open from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.!
This is one of the largest displays in the area and is timed to music. Local DJ Jeremiah Nichol will provide music for the evening. Victory Pyrotechnics & SFX will even have lasers as part of the performance.
The 2019 celebration will take place at Kenneth W. Bernard Community Park, 15650 Gilman Road, located north of 4-H Road about 2.5 miles west of Main Street (K-7 Highway). The event has free parking until 7 p.m. and free admission. Parking is $1 after 7 p.m. The field opens to the public at 5:30 p.m. There will be motorcycle and ADA parking on the field.
