Alamo 4th of July

Alamo’s 4th of July celebration is a valley tradition that grows every year. The park fills with vendors and children of all ages happily wander around playing games and devouring treats. There’s the annual parade which sees a wide variety of hand-made, custom floats. Athletes can run the Firecracker 5K, play in the 3-on-3 basketball tournament, volleyball tournament, and home run derby. And there is always delicious food including a pancake breakfast and a scrumptious dinner. After dinner, kids fire up their glow sticks and continue their unencumbered fun until the night is capped off with a rousing fireworks display, courtesy of the local volunteer fire department.

Alamo’s celebration seems to grow every year. The annual parade sees a wide variety of hand-made, custom floats that depict different themes of the holiday, awarding three top prizes. The park fills with vendors and children of all ages happily wander around playing games and devouring treats. Athletes can choose from the Firecracker 5K, 3-on-3 basketball tournament, volleyball tournament, and home run derby.

Delicious food is offered – a pancake breakfast by the FFA and a scrumptious dinner put on by the 4th of July committee. After dinner, family and friends enjoy each other’s company and children run around with delight as the sun falls in the western sky. As it gets dark, kids fire up their glow sticks and continue their unencumbered fun.

The night is always capped off with a rousing fireworks display, courtesy of the local volunteer fire department.

This year’s theme is “SWEET LAND OF LIBERTY”
