Due to the ongoing construction of the Community and Aquatic Center, the pathway leading down from Upper Commons to the Lower Commons is closed on this July 4th. To reach the prime viewing locations in the Lower Commons, please enter via Southeast Fourth Street. There will also be shuttles available that run from Upper Commons to Lower Commons, as well as from the Mars Hill property to both Upper and Lower Commons.

Despite that small change, this year's celebration should be better than ever:

  • The fireworks start at 10:00 pm.
  • Before that the bands will play at City Hall Plaza. Come see "America be Strong" and "Wings 'N' Things"
  • Great food is available on both the Upper and Lower Commons
  • The Lower Commons will feature lots of kids activities, with unlimited access to bouncy toys for just $5

See you at the Fourth on the Plateau!
