4th of July Celebration!

Celebrate the July 4th in Loveland!

Gather up your family and friends – then come join us for an evening of delightful sights and sounds as we celebrate our country and patriotic spirit at 4th of July in Loveland! A hometown parade, music in the park, explosive fireworks are the hallmark of this annual event – but wait, there’s more!

NEW to this year’s celebration are a float competition(complete with cash prizes to the winners) and aLil’ Miss Sparkler & Lil’ Mr. Firecracker contest!

The float competition is open to all groups, civic and sports organizations, churches, and businesses. A team of judges from the community will judge entries on such aspects as workmanship, originality, incorporation of the group’s identity, and incorporation of the parade’s theme of “Patriotism.” The first, second, and third place winners in the float competition will receive cash prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively. And . . . Loveland Hardware is offering a generous 15% discount on supplies to craft your float (proof of contest registration is required).

And, as usual, we’ll have the kid’s patriotic bike and stroller contest, toe-tapping music provided by the Chuck Taylors band, tasty summertime treats available at our downtown restaurants and from several vendors in Nisbet Park, and those famous Rozzi’s fireworks after dark! There’s something for everyone to enjoy at Loveland’s 4th of July celebration – it’s happening from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m. – come join the fun!
