River Park 4th of July Parade and Festival


River Park 4th of July Festival 2019

July 4th Parade & Festival Info:

The River Park Neighborhood Association (RPNA) invites you to the Annual July 4th Festival. This Festival is a River Park tradition, and if you are new to the neighborhood it’s a great way to meet your neighbors and see why living in River Park can’t be beat. There will be live music, food trucks, games, contests, craft vendors and more. There will be events for adults, older kids and little kids. Something for everyone!

We could not put this event on without the support of Jeff Harris, our Councilmember, whose staff and funding support this wonderful family event.  Thank you, Jeff Harris!

Street Closures:  Several streets in RP will be briefly closed during the Classic Car Parade and the Kids Firecracker Parade. Streets on the map linked here will be closed from approximately 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on July 4th.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes RP residents.  Streets affected are portions of Moddison, Teichert, Sandburg, Minerva, Monalee, and Carlson.  

Firecracker Parade:  Kids of all ages, bring your decorated bikes, scooters and wagons and parade down Carlson with your friends! This parade starts at Caleb Greenwood school, heads down Carlson, and ends at Glenn Hall Park. Please be at the school by 9:30 a.m.

Prices:  Wrist bands and hand stamps will cover games, contests, face painting and balloons. Wrist bands will be $10 for kids five and older. Hand stamps will be $5 for kids four and under. Tickets will be sold separately for one of the Bounce Houses as a fundraiser for the Front St. and Bradshaw Animal Shelters (sponsored by River Park resident Daniel Day). This year will be CASH ONLY!

Volunteers:  If you’d like to be part of this awesome event, we always need volunteers to help set up, tear down, run the games/contests, assist with bike parking, and sell wrist bands. Most volunteer posts are one-two hours so you can give back to your community and still enjoy the event. Please contact Kim Teague if interested, at kimpossible916@hotmail.com.

RPNA Membership:  If you are interested in becoming an RPNA member or want to check the status of your membership, please stop by our booth during the festival!
