KDWP ANNOUNCES JULY STATE PARK EVENTS; FIREWORKS AND MORE

Independence Day celebrations highlight month
PRATT -- Each month, Kansas state parks conduct special events, some in conjunction with Free Park Entrance Days, some to celebrate a special historical event or geological attribute of an individual park, and others just for entertainment. Each park sets its own dates for these events, including Free Park Entrance Days.

Events are diverse and may include anything from a marathon race to boating courses and equestrian events. Many are educational and all are designed to enhance the fun of visiting Kansas state parks. In early July, many parks conduct Independence Day celebrations.

For more information on state park events, phone individual parks or click the " Events Calendar " on the "State Parks" page of the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks website. The following is a list of events for July:
