Fireworks will again light up the Harrisburg sky this Independence Day.

The city announced on Wednesday that it will again bring music, food and fun to Riverfront Park for its July 4th Food Trucks and Fireworks festival.

The festival returns after the pandemic halted the in-person celebration last year. The city instead opted for a virtual presentation.

This year’s event will resemble pre-COVID summers and feature a wide selection of food trucks, live music, a wine garden, kids and family activities and the largest fireworks display in central PA, according to the city.

A food guide and event map will be made available soon on Harrisburg’s website.

Residents and visitors can take advantage of free street parking for the holiday, as well as $5 parking on City Island.

Harrisburg’s 4th of July Food Trucks and Fireworks festival takes place 3 to 9 p.m. in Riverfront Park, Harrisburg. For more information visit the event website.
