About the Event
The 4th at Firestone has become not only Firestone’s premier annual community event, but also a regional attraction to celebrate America’s birthday.

The parade weaves its way from Thunder Valley K-8 through Historic Firestone to Miners Park for the celebration. Floats, decorated vehicle displays, marching bands, classic cars, motorcycles and more will compile a parade lineup that residents and festival attendees will not
want to miss. This is the perfect time for people to show their American pride by lining the streets in celebration. The festival will include a showcase of business, children, food nonprofit vendors. Free activities will include a climbing wall, bungee trampoline, inflatable jumps, petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, caricature artist, mini golf, horseshoes, games and more.
