KC RiverFest, the big family-style Independence Day celebration, will kick off at 4 p.m. Thursday, July 4, at the Richard L. Berkley Riverfront Park.

Hosted by the city of Kansas City, Mo., the event will feature live, local music on two stages, food, a children’s play area and a custom fireworks display by 120-year-old Zambelli Fireworks company, one of the largest pyrotechnic firms in the world.

The National Airline History Museum will present a fly over from a vintage World War II-era PV-2 Harpoon aircraft at about 5:15 p.m. Fireworks will begin at dark, around 10 p.m. with the Missouri River and the downtown skyline as the backdrop.

Featured entertainment will include KOKOMO, 4 Fried Chickens and a Coke, Las Estrellas, Funk Syndicate, and finalist contestants from the local Pitch Music Showcase, including Antennas Up, David George Band, 77 Jefferson, Shades of Jade and more.

Admission is free between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. and costs $5 thereafter for adults. Children 12 years old and younger will receive free admission. Festival-goers are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs, but no coolers, glass or outside food or beverages will be permitted.
