Thank you to everyone who turned out (despite the weather!) for a great Fourth of July event. We love how this annual event brings our community together. Stay tuned for 2019 details to be updated in the spring. In the meantime, learn more about the 2018 event below.
Our annual tradition of the Tangletown 4th of July parade and celebration will be here before we know it! You don’t want to miss the fire truck-led parade, refreshments, carnival games, crafts, and live music. Bring your picnic blanket, decorate your bike or your pet, and join us July 4th for a Tangletown tradition.
We Need Your Help!
We can’t make this event happen without the helping hands of our neighbors who run games, organize the parade, manage bounce houses, and more. All volunteers will receive one of our brand new Tangletown t-shirts! Please consider volunteering for a short shift to help make the event a success. Sign up for a shift here.
New this year: Buy Wristbands in Advance!
We’re excited to announce that an all inclusive wristband will take the place of activity tickets this year. This change will help speed up lines and enable kids to participate as much and as often as they like! Wristbands will be available for $8 per wristband and can be purchased in advance by clicking here. If you do not have a PayPal account, select Pay by Credit or Debit Card. Wristbands will also be available for purchase on the day of the event. Additionally, we will be selling $2 tickets on the day of event only for the ever popular sno-cones.
Another New Addition: Crafts!
Thanks to a generous donation from Oriental Trading Company, we’re adding craft activities for kids. Stay tuned for examples of the types of crafts that will be offered!
