The City of Winter Park will host its 27th annual 4th of July Celebration on Monday, July 4, from 9 a.m.-noon, in Martin Luther King, Jr. Park and the Tiedtke Amphitheater, behind the Winter Park Events Center.

According to the City of Winter Park, the event was moved to a new location this year to allow for the construction of the new $840,000 Central Park main stage. The event is free and open to the public and attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets and lawn chairs.

The event will include opening remarks from Mayor Phil Anderson and the National Anthem, followed by live musical performances and patriotic music performed by the Bach Festival Choir and Brass Ensemble led by Dr. John Sinclair.

Activities will also feature a Kids Zone in Martin Luther King, Jr. Park with carnival midway games, bounce slides, crafts, and more hosted by the Parks & Recreation Department. The annual bicycle parade will begin at 11:30 a.m. and children can bring their bicycles already decorated or decorate them under the Porte Cochère at the Events Center.

In conjunction with city festivities, The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art will celebrate 27 years on Park Avenue with its Independence Day Open House. The museum, which is home to the world’s most comprehensive collection of work by American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, will provide free admission to its galleries from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
