4th of July Celebration

Downtown Homewood
Thursday, July 4th 2013
5:30pm – 9:00pm 

The City of Homewood and the Homewood Parks and Recreation Board will celebrate the 4th of July in Downtown Homewood.  Two blocks of 18th Street South & One block of 29th Ave South will be blocked for pedestrian traffic in Downtown Homewood to make way for rides and attractions.  Our event opens to the general public at 5:30pm.  There will be a combination of inflatables/rides placed in the streets that will appeal to children of all ages.  A DJ will provide music and interactive activities for the patrons at the event.  Downtown Homewood is by far one of the best locations in the entire metro area to view the “Thunder on the Mountain” fireworks show from Vulcan Park ( http://www.visitvulcan.com/eventInfo/thunderonthemountain.htm ).  All of our activities will end at the beginning of the fireworks display.

There is no admission charge to enter the downtown event area but to ride and play on the attractions an unlimited attractions wristband ($10) must be purchased. Proceeds from this years July 4th Celebration will benefit the Homewood High School Band as they prepare to represent our city and state at the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California.
