Fourth of July

All events will be held on Friday, July 4, 2014

Looking forward to July 4th, 2014!

Independence Day will be here before you know it.  This years 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 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 years 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.
