Eden Prairie hosted its annual Fourth of July Hometown Celebration Thursday, as hundreds came out to enjoy the city’s festivities.

Round Lake Park hosted the events, including a pickleball tournament, a 5K run and inflatables.

The night of fun finished off with fireworks shot over Round Lake. The city of Eden Prairie invested $25,000 in this year’s fireworks show. This was the 35th consecutive year for the city’s Fourth of July fireworks.
