Castle Rockin' the Fourth

Tuesday, July 4

Spend the day with family, friends and neighbors and head over to Philip S. Miller Park for a full day of fun for the entire family. To celebrate our nation's birthday, Castle Rockin' the Fourth will kick off with a free, untimed, Independence Day 5K at 9 a.m. Then, you can cool off on the Millhouse lawn and get covered in bubbles at a foam party.

Castle Rockin' the Fourth red, white and blue words in the shape of a waving flag.

Throughout the day, there will be magic shows, patriotic movies, live music, kid's activities, food trucks and cocktails and beer for purchase. At 8 p.m., enjoy a free show by the much-loved Neil Diamond tribute band, Super Diamond. The grand finale will be a spectacular drone show for all to enjoy.

If you can't make it to Philip S. Miller Park, there will be an additional drone show above Santa Fe Quarry Butte, located in the Red Hawk area south of the golf course. 

Find a spot around town to watch, or join us at Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course for a viewing party. From 6 to 9 p.m. outside of the clubhouse, enjoy live music, two outdoor beverage carts, and food from their outdoor grill or food trucks. The evening will conclude with a fantastic view of the patriotic drone show over the butte.
