  2. Circle the Date for Jackson's 2019 Independence Day Celebration in City Park

    The City of Jackson wants everyone to know that it’s not too early to go ahead and circle Thursday, July 4th on the calendar.  That will be the day your family and friends will all come together to celebrate at the Parks and Recreation’s 2019 Independence Day Celebration in the City Park. 

    Jackson’s event, which for decades has been one of the best Independence Day celebrations in the area, is back again this year with more fun-filled events and activities for everyone.  The celebration will include music, cars, a 5K run, helicopter rides, a rubber duck race, golf ball drop, food vendors, and live entertainment preceding a great fireworks display.  Mud volleyball also returns this year with another double-elimination co-ed tournament beginning at 8:30 a.m.  So start forming those teams and get ready for all the messy, muddy fun.
