Located on the west bank of the Mississippi River, between 9th and 12th street north, Hester Park provides a family friendly environment for enjoying the entire day. Plenty of green space makes this park a local favorite and a great place to bring the blanket and picnic basket for a day of relaxation.
Just off Riverside Drive and across the river from Hester Park, Wilson Park affords spectators with fantastic views of the Fireworks display. Wilson Park also plays host to members of the United States military and their families in a special ‘Reserved Seating’ area. No reservations needed, simply bring a chair, show your military ID and enjoy the show!
Boaters and pleasure craft users can take advantage of spectacular viewing from the Mississippi River. Watch for the Marking Buoys and Public Safety Water Craft for approved viewing areas.
