Let’s face it, there’s just something quaint and fun about a hometown Fourth of July Parade and fireworks. Held in Downtown Roseville, our Fourth of July Parade is one of the best ways to kick off the holiday…from honoring our community and cheering on local groups and activities, to dressing up in everyone’s favorite red, white, and blue, our parade without a doubt will get you in the holiday spirit. And the truth is, community events like these that are all part of a successful, thriving community for residents and businesses alike. Here are a few reasons why the Fourth of July is one of our favorite city holiday traditions.
The Sense of Unity
Friends and neighbors lined up dressed in red, white, and blue on a beautiful summer morning? Count us in. Flags waving, music playing, children cheering, Roseville’s Annual Fourth of July Parade is an excellent way for young, old and everyone in between to celebrate together. This year the parade starts at 9 am at the 4th intersection of Riverside/Vernon/Douglas and heads down Vernon past the Civic Center, turning right on Lincoln Street before finishing on Park Drive. Be sure to get there early to get a spot (parking is free in Downtown Roseville).
The Fourth of July is all about family too. It’s a day for BBQs, swimming, and fireworks, where you can slow down and spend some time with those closest to you. Speaking of picnics and family time…you can continue the fun in Downtown Roseville post parade, by heading over in Royer Park for fun family activities such as face painting, music, and food from 10 am-1 pm.
The Patriotic Spirit
And just so the day can go out with a bang, one of the best things about this year’s Fourth of July celebration is the fireworks are back! Presented by @the Grounds and the City of Roseville, the gates open at 4 pm and entry is free. Enjoy live music, food trucks, concessions, beverages, bounce houses, and kids activities (some items are for purchase) before the festivities. Fireworks begin at approximately 9:30 pm, and parking is $10.
