Canal Park will play host to a special “Fourth on the Field” to celebrate Independence Day.
The night will include a showing of “STAR WARS: The Last Jedi” before the start of the city of Akron’s annual fireworks show. Tickets are only $5 and benefit Akron Snow Angels.
Gates open at 6 p.m. with “The Last Jedi” slated to start at 7 p.m. A brief intermission will follow the movie before the start of the fireworks. Canal Park will have concessions stands and restrooms open for the convenience of families, particularly those with children who want to come to downtown Akron early to avoid the rush and crowds.
Fans can bring blankets and sit on the field and enjoy popcorn and other snacks. However, no chairs are permitted on the playing field.
