The Falls are fun for all ages, and the stairs are great for some exercise. Do be prepared to get a bit damp, especially if there is a breeze.

I had been here as a kid so I was game to visit with my kids. Nice time the falls light up and music is playing. All man made so not as cool as natural falls but a neat change of pace.

No, the falls are not free, but very reasonably priced. I believe a family admission is $10 for the entire family. Yes, the Cascades are open every night in the summer.
Are there chairs to watch the fireworks on 7/3 or do we need to bring them? What is the admission cost?
