Fourth of July


Independence Day will be here before you know it.  This year’s celebration, including the parade, Party in the Park and fireworks, is shaping up to be one of the best ever. Since the 1920’s U.A. has made the Fourth of July a special community event.

The parade holds many memories for U.A. families over the years, with neighborhood floats, marching bands, antique cars and much more entertaining young and old alike. The parade route starts at the intersection for Northwest Blvd and Zollinger Rd. It runs south crossing Lane Ave and ending at the intersection of Northwest Blvd and North Star Rd.

The Party in Park continues to grow in popularity and is the perfect entree before one of the most spectacular fireworks displays you will ever see.  If your neighborhood or organization is interested in entering a float in this year’s parade, follow the link to learn more, as well as receive information on wake up calls the morning of the parade, securing a table for the Party in the Park and information on the fireworks show at Northam Park.
