Leave your mark on history by celebrating with family and friends on this special day
The celebration will begin with a ribbon cutting and the official turning-on of the interactive water feature.

Festivities include Cheerwine visiting us as they, too, are 100 this year. Their samples will provide the perfect centennial refresher. Face painting, free bubbles, and more will be available for kids to enjoy. Sleepy Owl is hosting a food truck rodeo and Sam’s Snoballs are making an appearance!

A variety of entertainment will join the celebration, including the Central Baptist Church Choir, Kingsport Showtime, Kingsport Ballet, the State Theatre Group and a magician! They will light up the stage and make you want to stay all day. While the festivities finish at 2:00pm, the park is yours forever!
