Winter Haven Centennial Rockin' Freedom Fest

Winter Haven, FL -- Join the city as it celebrates Winter Haven’s Centennial beginning with an old fashioned community picnic beginning at 4 p.m. Bring your family, chairs or a blanket, and a basket of your favorite picnic food.

From there, be entertained with a nostalgic sing-along by Harmony Grits, and participate in family games including three-legged races, watermelon seed spitting contests and corn-hole toss.

During the evening, two ski shows will be featured on beautiful Lake Silver. An inflatable obstacle course, rock wall and bounce house, a dunk tank, historic displays and food vendors will also be available throughout the evening.

As the sun sets, live music from The Rouges will fill the air as preparations are made for a 9:30 p.m. fireworks show by Zambelli. This family fun is a great way to begin your Independence Day festivities and celebrate Winter Haven’s 100th Anniversary.
