Although the Fourth of July is tomorrow people in the valley have been celebrating all week long. 

Going on tonight at Wild Water Adventure Park there will be an early firework show after their rides close.

Kathy Siggers is the owner of Wild Waters Adventure Park. She said this is the start to a four night event.

“So, it’s about a 25 minute show with lasers, fireworks, multimedia with video, and it is just a lot of fun,” said Siggers. 

Another fun firework show to check out is at Kingsburg High School. The city puts it on every year and expects thousands to come out. 

Kaitlyn Castaneda is the Executive Director for Kingsburg Chamber of Commerce.
She said this event brings everyone out!

“Great place for families to come and hang out,” said Castaneda. “We do a lot of ground fireworks so it is really cool to be in the stadium and watch it because they are beautiful.”

At this celebration the Kingsburg Boy Scouts will put on a flag retiring ceremony for everyone to see. 

Brandon Hirschfield is the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader for Kingsburg Boy Scouts. He said it will be cool for people to see what goes into retiring the American flag. 

“You don’t see a lot of flag retirements anymore and it is kind of a point of reference,” said Brandon.

The Pelco flag that will be retired at the Kingsburg Fourth of July celebration is very large. 

Brandon said it is almost as big as a high school track field. 

“It’s a really big flag and it covers most of the track and I think they are going to be astonished at how big the flag is,” said Brandon.
