Communities celebrate on eve of 4th of July

Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation is again pleased to be hosting the 55th annual Fourth of July Parade along State Street and the free evening concert at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Gardens.

Fireworks are a big part of the Fourth of July celebration, but they're not a hit with everyone.

- Fourth of July Celebration and fireworks begin at 10 p.m.at Lakeside Lodge, 3857 Lakeside Lodge Lane.

A fireworks show over Lake Menomin starts at dusk.

A list of participating parks and recreation areas can be seen below, but guests should note that the DNR cannot guarantee that fireworks will not be set off near the state parks. That followed a 2003 fire, started by teenagers using fireworks purchased legally, that destroyed a home in a neighborhood where the use of fireworks had been banned by the city a year earlier - because of the high fire danger.

The annual celebration, this year marking the 242nd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, is organized the city Recreation and Parks Department and the Greenville Noon Rotary Club.

Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli said in an email the most likely cause of the fire was aerial fireworks. There will also be live music, festivities, a reading of the Declaration of Independence and entertainment in the surrounding areas. A shuttle will run starting at 4 p.m.

Clarksville - Fireworks may be used July 1-5 between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Gates open at 6 p.m., with fireworks beginning between 9 p.m.to 9:30 p.m.

On July 4, there is only a 20 percent chance of rain, and temperatures are expected to reach 91 degrees.

More than 50 floats and walking units will make up the parade, with the owners of the 127-year-old Schimpff's Confectionery, Warren and Jill Schimpff, serving as the grand marshals.

Altoona Independence Day celebration will be tonight. The park hosts a block party with food and live music and can be reached via the Metro.

"Exceptional Fireworks Show" at SeaWorld: SeaWorld says that its "jaw-dropping" fireworks display combines pyrotechnics and a triumphant musical score. The heat should break a bit by the time the fireworks show begins, which will be around 10 p.m.

Features family-friendly activities, onsite food and drinks, prize giveaways, and more.
