The Lockport Sesquicentennial Committee is planning a carnival at Outwater Park on July 4.

The three-hour carnival, geared towards families, will include food, games and a bounce house, according to Sesquicentennial Committee member Maria Updegraph.

The committee is planning to offer cotton candy, snow cones and popcorn at reasonable rates and is looking for a Lockport-area service group interested in providing hamburgers and hotdogs as a fundraiser — with the service group keeping the profits.

There will also be a dunk tank, a bounce house, sack races, a duck pond game, watermelon eating contest and more.

The event will take place from noon to 3 p.m., giving families time to rest before the big July 4 fireworks, also at Outwater Park.

Another event being planned during the nine-day birthday celebration is a water balloon fight on July 1 at Altro Park. The free-for-all will be broken into age groups with kids aged 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16 “fighting” at 3 p.m. and then everyone age 17 and up having their turn at 3:30 p.m.

Both events are part of 150 events being planned during the city’s sesquicentennial celebration. Others include the annual downtown Arts & Crafts festival, Taste of Lockport, the Independence Day parade, Lockport Restaurants Days, concerts, crafts, sporting events, and more.

More event announcements are forthcoming. The committee is also still looking for other businesses or community groups to add their own events. Events can be added online at
