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.
This year's event is sponsored by Speedway Auto Group and a Ride for the Wounded. 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.
The 2018 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. There will be free parking and a shuttle from Lansing High School.
Bring your chair! The last shuttle from LHS is at 9:15 p.m., and the gates close at 9:30 p.m. For kids' inflatables, tickets are available for $1 each, wristbands are $12.
Please be patient after the event. There are a lot of cars and only one exit. The rain date is Saturday, June 30.
