Best Bet: Fireworks on the River

Tuesday, July 3


For more than 40 years, the Cedar Boat Club has been setting the sky ablaze above the Cedar River at Ellis Park, with its fireworks extravaganza. The show begins at dusk, but come early to stake your claim for viewing from the riverbanks. The streets around the park typically close at 7 p.m. Bring your seating and picnics, but leave your personal fireworks at home. Looking for some entertainment beforehand? The Five Seasons Ski Team will be performing its award-winning daredevil jumps, barefoot pyramids and giant pyramids at 7 p.m., and again on July 4 and 5.
