Lake Fairfax will host fireworks on Saturday, July 3, 2021, bringing back this community celebration after a pandemic-driven cancellation last year.

Tickets can be purchased online through 11:59 p.m. on July 2. Advance tickets are available for $10 per car; day-of tickets may be purchased at the park for $15 per car. The fireworks will be launched at dark which is usually shortly after 9 p.m. Attendees should arrive by 8 p.m. to ensure sufficient time to park and find a spot to watch the show.

For those looking to make a day out of it, the park will be open at sunrise and will have various food trucks on site throughout the day providing delicious food and beverages. The Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole will also be open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., but be sure to purchase tickets in advance as the water park routinely sells out by noon. Come on out, enjoy the park, find a spot and enjoy the show!
