Thursday July 4 10:00am-1:00pm at Fuller Park
Parade staging at 9:30am at Washburn High School
The parade kicks off the event! Join us decked out in your patriotic best as we walk and roll through the neighborhood. New this year, Blooma will be leading a yoga warm up before the parade takes off! We’re bringing back the ever popular Roe Family Singers a super fun blue grass duo who fill the park with great music for all to enjoy. There are loads of activities for kids including inflatables, carnival games, a dunk tank, crafts, and face painting. See below for details about pre-purchasing an all inclusive wristband. Bring your own food or take advantage of a variety of food trucks and cool off with a Tangletown sno-cone! Wristband and sno-cone sales help support the costs of putting on this neighborhood event.
We Need Your Help!
We can’t make this event happen without the helping hands of our neighbors who help set up and tear down, run games, manage bounce houses, distribute will call, and more. All volunteers will receive a Tangletown t-shirt! Please consider volunteering for a short shift to help make the event a success. Sign up for a shift here.
