4th of July Celebration
Updated: Jul 18, 2023
Welcome to the best small-town 4th of July celebration. Our community is packed full of family fun the entire day. The 4th kicks off with the annual flag-raising ceremony at Weilmunster Park at 8 am. The Garden Valley EMS/Ambulance service hosts a golf tournament, silent auction, and BBQ, all at Terrace Lakes Resort beginning at 9 am. Children's games start at 10:00 am and we are bringing back the Soap Box Derby races this year! At 4 pm, the Duck Race is a must-see, and you can participate by purchasing a duck (available at Garden Valley Properties, Garden Valley Homes and Land, and also at the Saturday Farmer's Market). Finally, don’t miss the parade at 6 pm. There are two parts to the parade, Dry and Wet. There is a 5-minute break between the two, so if you don’t want to get drenched, scramble away before the wet parade (swim cap and goggles recommended. Finish your day 30 minutes after dusk with the biggest small-town fireworks show in the Northwest. Bring your lawn chair or blanket to the park and enjoy the show!
