Celebration planned for 4th of July
Everyone likes a good, old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration.
You can enjoy one this week, the “Festival of America” a three-day affair, right here in the Grand Coulee Dam area.
The celebration kicks off on Thursday, July 4, with music in the park below the Visitor Center.
There’s lots to do. A number of craft booths will offer goods and several food booths will fix a summer-time lunch or dinner for you.
The music will take you right up to the Laser Light Show time. And to cap it all off, about 10:30 p.m., there will be the giant fireworks display right off the top of Grand Coulee Dam on July 4.
Music in the park continues Friday and Saturday, as do the craft and food booths, with tours of the dam and Laser Light Show adding to the celebration.
The chamber of commerce has added a number of family-friendly games, good for all ages, at this year’s celebration.
Plus, this year the community will see the debut of the sport of roller derby in this area. Teams from around the state will come for a demonstration skrimmage July 5 at North Dam Park in Grand Coulee.
The Festival of America is sponsored by the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Coulee Dam Casino, with music arranged for by the town of Coulee Dam.
