It’s fireworks over the river, a “Parade of Lites” on the river, and games for all at this family-friendly gathering on Sunday, July 2 and Monday, July 3. The fun runs all day Sunday with the Big Rocky Games, a firehouse barbecue, horseshoes, and volleyball.

The games continue Monday and Independence Day Celebrations start at dusk with the “Parade of Lites,” when groups unveil their homemade floats bedecked in lights and perform skits while floating past a cheering audience. That’s followed by a free show at the town’s famous water curtain, as images of the American flag are projected off the Monte Rio bridge, and then the dramatic fireworks display.
