For the first time ever you will be able to get the best seat for Stars and Stripes on the River.
The Lorena Sternwheeler will be open to the public at Zane’s Landing Park…and for 10 dollars you will be allowed to board the boat and watch the fireworks. Seating will begin at 8:30 p.m. Friday.. Kelly Ashby, Vice President of the Zanesville Muskingum County Chamber of Commerce says seating is limited so boarding will be on a first come, first serve basis.
"They are talking about 50 to 60 folks because everyone of course will want to be on top to be able to view the fireworks from the top of the Lorena."
People are encouraged to take advantage of this exciting opportunity. Ashby says that it will be a great way to see the display because of the beautiful view.
"We certainly encourage families to take advantage of that because its a great way to view the fireworks on the Lorina, and just a great view of the Muskingum River and of course a beautiful view of the sky."
If you dont get the chance to experience the fireworks from the Lorena, there are many other events going on at Zanes Landing Park the rest of the holiday weekend.
"You can certainly take advantage of public rides on Friday, July 4th at 2PM and 3:30PM. Also Saturday, public rides at 2PM and 3:30PM. Sunday, public rides at 2PM and 3:30PM and theres also a dinner cruise Saturday evening from 6 to 8."
