KISSIMMEE, Fla., June 27, 10:30 a.m. – Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) has been lighting the city of Kissimmee since 1901. On Monday, July 4th we’ll light the sky.

The event will feature live entertainment on three stages, water ski show, arts and crafts show, free Bingo with prizes, karaoke, rock climbing wall and dozens of food vendors.

In addition, KUA will provide a children’s area with complimentary sno-kones, patriotic cookie decorating, inflatable slides and utility bucket truck rides.

“We are proud to be a sponsor of Osceola County’s largest Independence Day celebration,” said Jim Welsh, KUA president and general manager. “As an organization with deep American roots, it’s an honor to play a role in this annual celebration.”
