GARNETT, KS: The City of Garnett encourages you to make plans now to celebrate Independence Day at Libertyfest on Saturday, July 3rd in the North Lake Park.
Libertyfest will include music and large community fireworks display over Lake Garnett. Lawn chairs and family picnics are encouraged. Food concessionaires, civic groups and food trucks are invited (no vendor fee charged). Camping is available in designated areas.

The tentative schedule of events is as follows:
At the entrance, Hope Anthem Church will also be handing out free Bomb Pops (red, white and blue popsicle treats) and free sunglasses to welcome attendees to this event.
In the event of bad weather, the Libertyfest rain date would be July 10th.
Donations for the fireworks display are being accepted now and will be accepted at the park entrance. Donations are slowly trickling in this year. Give what you can so that this annual event may continue.
