The Jackson Lions Club is pleased to announce the return of their traditional family picnic activities to the Club’s annual Third of July Fireworks Show at a new location – Aimee Baseball Field, Detert Park, Jackson.
On Sunday, July 3, 2022, the Jackson Lions will welcome kids of all ages to Aimee Baseball Field, Detert Park, Jackson, to celebrate Independence Day with family games, live music, a barbecue snack shack, and raffle for great prizes (including four bicycles!), all leading up to the spectacular fireworks show that the Lions Club is famous for providing to the community. As in past years, the fireworks show will be launched from Jackson Jr High Butte Bowl -- no public allowed there.
The fun and games will be held on the baseball field starting at 6 pm, with live patriotic music at Detert Park and the fireworks show beginning at dark, usually around 9:30 pm. Admission is free, and families should bring chairs or blankets for seating on the lawn.
Plan to park at Argonaut High School (parking lot on Argonaut Lane) and catch the free Amador Transit shuttle to Detert Park at the corner of Argonaut Lane and Westview Drive. The shuttle will run every 20 minutes between Detert Park and the corner of Argonaut Lane and Westview Drive. Click here for the full schedule.
The Lions are also planning to hold their annual safe and sane fireworks sale 9 am – 9 pm, June 28 – July 4, near the Aimee Baseball Field at Detert Park in Jackson.
All proceeds from fireworks sales and donations will support the Jackson Lions scholarship funds and support to youth groups and many other local projects.
