Food, Music and Fireworks return to downtown Wichita this July 4th

The city's biggest July 4th fireworks show returns this year for Red, White & BOOM! 2017, presented by Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers.  Join us for food trucks, live music from The Astronauts, and a fireworks finale over the river.  Activities will once again be centered around the KSN Lawn, in front of the Hyatt.  

Visit our event page for more information.  We hope you'll join us!
