Celebrate the 4th in Castle Rock Colorado
Red, White and You Patriotic Parade & Festival
How are you kicking off your 4th of July celebration? Yes, it falls in the middle of the week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time with the whole family. Before you fire up your grill and crack a beverage with friends and family, make your way to Bison Park for the 4th of July 2019 Red White and You Patriotic Parade and Festival at Bison Park. Celebrate our nation and join the fun in what’s become an incredible tradition here in The Meadows on Thursday, July 4 from 11-1 p.m.
In my opinion, the highlight of the event is the annual Patriotic Parade. It will begin at 11:15 am; decorate your bikes, strollers, and wagons to show your patriotic pride. Your kids will have fun decorating and have even more fun being the stars of the parade riding around the park with spectators cheering them on. Everyone is encouraged to join in on the Patriotic Parade.
Plenty of Post Parade Festivities
After you finish the Patriotic Parade take some time to visit with neighbors, you may not have seen since the end of the school year. Let the kids play and enjoy free cotton candy, concessions, and music. Your kids can also enjoy inflatable rides, trackless trains, among other activities for the whole family. Grab a brat or a hot dog from the Boy Scouts or shaved ice from the Kona Ice Truck.
Celebrate the Nation
The 4th of July 2019 Red, White and You Patriotic Parade and Festival at Bison Park is from 11am-1pm. That makes it a perfect warm up to your 4th of July barbecue and evening festivities. Plus, it is an excellent way to catch up with friends. If you are in town, I highly recommend you start your Independence Day with this beautiful tradition in The Meadows.
Fireworks will blast off from the Santa Fe Quarry Butte above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course. Because of the elevation of the butte – about 6,700 feet – and because this is a high-flying show, there will not be a designated park for show-goers to attend. The fireworks are expected to be seen from most places in Town. However, visibility may be limited in Crystal Valley Ranch, Plum Creek, Founders, Castlewood Ranch and Sapphire Pointe.
There is no formal event along with these fireworks. If you’re parking in neighborhoods to see the show, please be courteous of driveways and adhere to any posted neighborhood parking restrictions. Parking along major streets and roadways will be limited.
While Philip S. Miller Park is close in proximity, the natural buttes and valleys may obstruct views from the park. Also, please note the MAC will be closed for the July 4 holiday, though the Castle Rock Zipline Tours will be open until dark.
All Town parks will be open until 11 p.m., but please respect the park and clean up any trash or debris after the show.
The timing of the show could change, based on weather or fire restrictions, and in case of lightning, the show may be rescheduled. Stay tuned to the Town’s Facebook page (@CRgov) for updates on July 4. In the event weather cancels the show, it will be rescheduled for July 5.
