Held on the banks of the Missouri River, Kansas City's Fourth of July festival blends song and dance with fireworks and civic pride. The fest’s main event blasts off at 10:05 p.m. when “the first family of fireworks,” the Zambellis, ignite their extravagant pyrotechnic displays. The show stirringly syncs to 20 minutes of music by Mix 93.3 while fully illuminating the grinning, funnel cake-covered faces in the crowd.
Plenty of entertainment at this kid-friendly fête precedes the fireworks’ kaleidoscopic starbursts. Country-music singer-songwriter Dustin Lynch takes the main stage at 7 p.m. for a set inspired by his latest album, Cowboys and Angels. Then, the 18 professional, enlisted musicians of the U.S. Air Force Band of Mid-America's Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble apply patriotic brass with the peppy, big-band sounds of Glenn Miller and other swinging tunes. In the marketplace, fest-goers can refuel with bites into juicy, jumbo hot dogs, barbecued pulled pork, and other classic carnival concessions.
Though KCRiverFest sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
