It is with heavy hearts that we announce the Fernley 4th of July event for 2020 has been cancelled. Do to liability, the city will not issue permits for the park or the parade.
We have wrestled with doing the Fireworks, however, since we will not have use of the park there simply will not be enough space for the community to enjoy the show since you would have to watch the event while parked in your cars. For this reason, we have decided instead to save the Fireworks for next year. We are petitioning the city to contribute the same amount in 2021 so we can "Celebrate Our Nation the Old Fashioned Way" with a MUCH larger Firework show!
If you have already submitted an application or sent in a donation, we will be refunding your fees, please look for an email from the committee.
"Celebrating Our Nation The Old Fashioned Way"
Come out to Fernley and celebrate the way it was meant to be! The day starts off with a pancake breakfast at 8am which rolls right into the parade down Main Street at 10am. The parade is kicked off by the Show n Shine cars and is then lead down Main Street by Nevada Veterans Coalition with the presenting of the National Colors.
Once the parade ends, usually between 11:00am and 11:30am, head on over to the Out of Town Park for a day of fun and entertainment! We have vendors, refreshments, a Show n Shine, Kids Games (some are free, some have a cost), a new VIP area, music, a raffle, Parade Trophies, Watermelon Eating Contest, Greased Pigs Contest, and lots, lots more!
Once dusk rolls around you will want to bring your blanket to lay out in the baseball fields and watch the spectacular Fireworks Show! The Fireworks start at approx. 9:30pm, with the DJ playing music for all to hear and enjoy, and turn your car radios to 101.3 to hear the same music in your cars! The day doesn't end once the Fireworks are over, come back to the main stage and enjoy the music and libations right up until midnight!
For more information or to get a booth, parade or Show ‘n Shine application, please see additional pages. Hope to see you all in Fernley this 4th of July to "Celebrate our Nation the Old Fashioned Way"!
The Theme for 2020:
