Since America first published the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, we have been celebrating the 4th of July with fireworks, parades, concerts, picnics and barbecues. A time of patriotism, we are pulled back to our roots, our love of Country and pride in America’s accomplishments over the past 240 years.
Each year Prescott celebrates the 4th in a big way, and this year is no different. The week-end activities will begin Friday, July 4th, with the Annual Kiwanis Kiddie Parade at 8:30am, and the Fine Arts & Craft Show at the Courthouse Square beginning at 9am. The largest fireworks show and all day family fun starts at 12:00 noon, with free admission and shuttle parking, and includes carnival activities like zip-lining, water slides, trampolines, climbing walls, games, pony rides and much more! The fireworks show is at 9pm, but come early for the live entertainment.
And though the 127th Annual Rodeo runs June 30 through July 6, the Frontier Days Rodeo Parade begins at 9:00am on Saturday, July 5 – and if that still isn’t enough, we have the Whiskey Row Street Dance at 5:00pm.
What a great place to live! Each year the traditional Summer Concert Series at the Courthouse takes place. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy free concerts and movies. The complete schedule is available here.
With more information on Prescott and the surrounding areas available through the Chamber of Commerce link located at the bottom of our Home page, we believe you will want to visit us again and again - or like many visitors, just make Prescott your “home”!
