July 2nd at Cedar Bluff State Park

It’s sure to be an amazing site worthy of celebrating America’s birth when fireworks fill the skies over beautiful Cedar Bluff State Park. Watch one of Western Kansas’s awe-inspiring sunsets fade into night, only to be replaced with fireworks zipping through the air and fanning out into great arches of color just before millions of twinkling stars make their appearance for the night. You’ll want to bring your sweetie to share this special moment. The event is free for families who have an annual KDWPT vehicle permit or passport, and only $5 per vehicle for the general public (cash only).
