This year, we are excited to offer residents a full day of activities for the entire family at Philip S. Miller Park in celebration of our nation's birthday. The fun-filled Castle Rockin’ the Fourth event culminates with an Independence Day drone show, which replaces the fireworks display of years past. We know that many look forward to celebrating with fireworks; however, the fallout from a typical July 4 fireworks show poses a significant wildfire risk. The dry summers we’ve experienced the past several years have created a high risk of wildfire and resulted in show cancellations. Fireworks are still planned for Starlighting as the low-flying fireworks show poses less fire risk during a typically less dry time of year.
