Carson Park is a popular spot in Eau Claire to celebrate the Fourth of July and this year was no exception.
The park was packed with activities to celebrate like free train rides at the Chippewa Valley Railroad, free admission to the Chippewa Valley Museum and Paul Bunyan Logging Camp.
For some people, spending the holiday at the park is a tradition.
“It’s an every year type deal,” says Jacob Laude. “We come out here every year.”
“We get to watch fireworks and go to the museum,” says Lydia Bosse who comes to the park for the Fourth of July every year with her family.
The celebrations ended with the “Fireworks Extravaganza” show.
