Fourth of July Jubilee

We envision the Jubilee to be a day-long event, from sunrise services to evening fireworks. All the major parks in the City will be made available for festivities. The Bicentennial Committee wants to offer the clubs, organizations, businesses, neighborhoods, and residents an opportunity to create a celebration that reflects their interests. Parades, cookouts, games, contests, and displays can all be part of the Bicentennial Jubilee and of course, the City will provide a grand fireworks display, entertainment, food, and activities at Weiss Field in the evening.
