There’s going to be a hot time in El Dorado County to celebrate America’s birthday and to get America’s party off to a grand start Cameron Park is having its Summer Spectacular celebration on Saturday, June 28 at Cameron Park Lake, 2989 Cambridge Road.

The gates open at 2 p.m. for a full afternoon and evening of action. New, low-level fireworks will begin as darkness falls, after a day filled with music, fun, food and drink at the lake, where swimming is always popular.

Vendors will line the area as children are kept busy in the Fun Zone-Active Adventures along with new kids’ activities this year. While the kids are having fun, the adults can indulge in the rocking sounds of The Tone Monkeys and the Kenny Frye Band, two groups that promise to keep the party rocking right up until the fireworks finale.

The Tone Monkeys, widely known as the best cover band in the Greater Sacramento area, will have folks dancing to the sounds of classic rock ‘n’ roll, while the Kenny Frye Band will present old and new “country fried” hits. Don’t forget to wear toe-tapping footgear.

Sponsored by the Cameron Park Community Services District, organizers ask that you don’t bring your own barbecue, nor are large ice chests allowed. Glass bottles are prohibited and no outside alcoholic beverages may be brought in. Don’t bring your own fireworks — there will be plenty to thrill the crowd once the sun goes down.

Tickets are $3 per person in advance and $5 at the gate. Children 6 and under are admitted free.

Advance tickets may be purchased at Walgreens, Bel-Air, the Food Bank of El Dorado County, the CSD office or the Shingle Springs/Cameron Park Chamber of Commerce.

Visit CameronPark.org for more information.
