Eden Prairie puts on a great event every year for the 4th of July. Our Hometown Celebration attracts more than 20,000 people to Round Lake Park for a day of fun and entertainment, and of course for the spectacular fireworks show over Round Lake at the end of the day.
One of the ways we’ve promoted our 4th of July event to the community over the years is with a trivia contest we sponsor with the Eden Prairie NEWS in their two issues leading up to the event.
This year we changed it up a bit, instead of trivia, we’re offering the “4th of July Fun Find.”
In last week’s paper, there was a hidden pictures puzzle for kids 12 and under, and this week there will be a word search for all ages. There are some great prizes to be won! Everything from a Gina Maria’s pizza to a one-year individual membership at the Community Center.
We have entry forms for both of the Fun Finds on our website this year. So even if you don’t get the newspaper, you can print off both contests and turn them in for the prize drawing that takes place during the 4th of July event.
It looks like this Sunday will be a great day for Eden Prairie’s 4th of July Hometown Celebration, I hope to see a lot of people there enjoying our community’s most popular event.
If you can’t be there, I hope that everyone has a fun – and safe – 4th of July holiday.
