Lincoln's biggest Fourth of July celebration is underway.
The annual event begins at 1 p.m. Thursday at Oak Lake Park with free family activities including canoeing, disc golf, volleyball, bocce ball, horseshoes, and more. Youth stage performances also begin at 1 p.m.
What's a Fourth of July celebration without the fireworks? Thousands of Zambelli fireworks are set to go off at 10 p.m., and it's free for the public to watch.
"There's a lot of fun activities and it really just lets you spend time with your family," 9-year-old Jack Edwards said.
Organizers say they expect more than 30,000 people to come through the park.
