Happy Birthday, America! Here's what you need to know if you plan on attending the River of Fire Festival in Columbia Park on the Fourth. This is so much more than just the most incredible fireworks display set to music that you've ever seen!

It all starts with a Family Fun Golf Tournament at 9 a.m. at the Columbia Park Golf Course. The River of Fire gates will open at 9 a.m. so you can stake your ground. It's only $5 per carload of people so bring your camp chairs and everybody that can fit!

Will there be a beer garden and good live music? Why yes, yes there will! Also food vendors, concessions and kids activities, too.

Special thanks to Hapo Credit Union-the official sponsor of summer, and Tri-City Water Follies for making all of this possible! For more details click HERE.
