The Kids Firecracker Runs

After the Freedom 4-Miler came the two kids runs at 9AM. In addition to being a great way to stay active on the Fourth of July, the kids runs turned out to be a really fun way for them to kick off the morning with a little healthy competition!

The Independence Day Parade

The entire Lewis Center community came together this year to make the 2014 Independence Day Parade a successful one! From the local businesses passing out candy to the excited children on the sidelines, to the Olentangy and Olentangy Orange High School cheer squads pumping up the entire crowd with “American Spirit”, the parade was great!

Beach Bash & Fireworks

Over at the Alum Creek beach, games, inflatables, and activities were put into place to entertain the kids and families, as well as information booths from local businesses who sponsored the event. The Olentangy Orange HS Drumline performed, followed by a live performance from The Websters. The night ended with a spectacular fireworks show!
