Voted one of the top 22 fireworks shows in the nation by USA Today! Located at the corner of Taft Avenue & 29th Street in northwest Loveland, North Lake Park also offers one of the area’s finest outdoor entertainment venues at the Norma & Lynn Hammond Amphitheater. Constructed and dedicated in 1996 by the Loveland Rotary Club, the City of Loveland, and many local philanthropists, this “state of the art” facility offers exceptional acoustics surrounded by grass seating. For the July 4th festivities, there will be close to 20,000 spectators gathered in this area!
