Aimee Baseball Field, Detert Park, Jackson


The Jackson Lions Club is pleased to announce plans for the club’s annual Third of July traditional family picnic and spectacular fireworks show at Aimee Baseball Field, Detert Park, Jackson.

On Wednesday, July 3, 2024, the Jackson Lions will welcome kids of all ages to Aimee Baseball Field, Detert Park, Jackson, to celebrate Independence Day with family games, bingo, a soda/snack bar, other food vendors (Wing It, Blue Stone Pizza, and Jamba Juice) and a raffle for bicycles and other great prizes, all leading up to the spectacular fireworks show that the Lions Club is famous for providing to the community.

The picnic will be held on the baseball field starting at 6 pm, family games starting at 7, and the fireworks show beginning at dark, usually around 9:30 pm. Admission is free, and families should bring chairs or blankets for seating at Detert Park. The fireworks show will be launched from the Jackson Jr. High sports field (no members of the public allowed there).

  • 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. Shuttle hours: 4:10 – 11:00 pm.
  • IMPORTANT -- No illegal fireworks are allowed in Detert Park and violators will be reported to the Jackson Police Department. 
  • Sorry, no pop-up tents will be allowed in the parking lots for Aimee Field/Detert Park as that space is needed for parking. 
  • No outside vendors will be allowed to sell at the event unless specifically approved by the Jackson Lions. 

The Lions are also planning to hold their annual safe and sane fireworks sale 9 am – 9 pm, Friday, June 28 (opens at 1 pm) – Thursday, 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. For more information, contact Jackson Lions Club July 3rd Co-Chair Todd Riebe (209) 418-9071.
