CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The annual Fourth of July Festival at the US National Whitewater Center attracted huge crowds this holiday...enough so that the park had to stop letting people in several hours before the fireworks show started.

People traveling along I-485 near Moores Chapel Road found themselves caught in the traffic jam.

Park officials say the park is packed but the crowd is calm and ready for the fireworks show.

The festival started on July 3, and was free and open to the public.
