The City of Winter Park will host its 27th annual 4th of July Celebration on Monday, July 4, from 9 a.m. until noon at Martin Luther King Jr. Park and Tiedtke Amphitheater, located behind Winter Park Library & Events Center. The event has been moved from Central Park to accommodate the construction of the new main stage.
Festivities will begin at Tiedtke Amphitheater with opening remarks from Mayor Phil Anderson, and the National Anthem. Guests will then enjoy a live performance by the Bach Festival Choir and Brass Ensemble led by Dr. John Sinclair. Attendees are encouraged to bring their blankets and lawn chairs.
Children can participate in the annual bicycle parade, starting at 11:30 a.m. Participants can bring pre-decorated bicycles or decorate on-site at the Events Center porte-cochère.
The Parks & Recreation Department will host a Kids Zone at Martin Luther King Jr. Park with games, activities, and a bounce slide. Free American mini pies, cookies, Kona Ice, and water will be sponsored by the Electric Utility Department, while supplies last.
In addition to the city-sponsored events, the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of America Art will host its Independence Day Open House, marking the museum’s 27th year on Park Avenue. The museum will offer free admission to its galleries from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Winter Park History Museum will also offer free admission from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
