BOOM! July is here and baseball season is in full swing! The Kansas City Royals are making a fantastic run this season—at the time of this writing, they’re near the top of the AL Central Division standings. At present, they’re on the road playing the Twins, Indians, and Rays until July 10th, after which they’re home for a four-game stint against the Tigers. In the meantime, we’re looking at our lineup of local Fourth of July celebrations. Check out some of the hottest fireworks displays and events of the 2014 celebration season.

KC Riverfest: Come down to Richard L. Berkley Park in the Country Club Plaza for an all-day Fourth of July celebration. Feast on tasty food truck fare while you enjoy live music by your favorite rock, country, and ragtime bands. There’s something for everybody at this festival! Kids will love the games, activities, and carnival rides. Even better, you can get free admission if you arrive at the park before 3:00. The celebration culminates in an impressive fireworks display that would make our forefathers proud. Read more and buy tickets in advance at

Booms and Blooms Festival at Powell Gardens: There’s no better time of year to see the flowers at Powell Gardens. Every lily is in bloom for this fun, family friendly Fourth of July celebration. Rock out with Lee’s Summit School of Rock and be mesmerized by the Lee’s Summit Symphony. After the music, enjoy a breathtaking fireworks display that lights up the night sky.

Celebrate America at Worlds of Fun: Feeling extra patriotic? Have to work on the Fourth? Come to Worlds of Fun any weekend in July to enjoy stunning fireworks displays and Independence Day activities. Kids (and kids at heart) will love the carnival atmosphere and the engaging activities. A blow-out fireworks display makes a perfect conclusion to a day of riding roller coasters and eating funnel cakes.
