Schedule of Events

  • 5K race – 7:30 a.m. 

    Proceeds from the 5K will benefit WarriorNOW. WarriorNOW was founded as a way to eliminate the stigma associated with Veterans dealing with Mental Illness, PTSD, TBI, and/or Addiction. It is unfortunate how many of our Veterans are suffering and have no outlet or access to resources to assist in fighting this daily battle. We are committed to this fight and will ensure that our Veterans do not fight alone. Much like being in the military, we are bringing the team approach back to the lives of our Veterans where it belongs.

  • Cornhole Competition – 10 a.m.

  • Food and beverage – 4 p.m.

  • Live entertainment featuring Morgan Evans with special guest The Tyler Walker Band – 5 p.m. 

  • Musical fireworks – 9:30 p.m.

For the safety and comfort of your pets, please do not bring animals into the park for the Stars & Stripes event. Visitors are kindly reminded that most fireworks are illegal in Adams County; please leave fireworks of any type to the pros. For more information about the Stars & Stripes event, or to find out more about Park Rules and Regulations in effect during the summer, call 303.637.8000.
