  • We parked at hobby lobby and walked over to the park where all of the action was. We went back to the car to watch fireworks and it was perfect.
  • Very little shade. There are some shady spots by the playground but the view for the fireworks is not as good there. My 2.5 year old loved it, but it is always very crowded.
  • take a chair, not much shade but the sun is going down so it shouldn’t be too bad and my 2 year old had a blast! Lots of people though.
  • we park at Kroger and actually stay there the whole time- there is a hill that the kids use boxes to slide down and the kids there have so much fun.
  • We like to sit at the corner of neshoba and germantown parkway.
