July 4th 2019
There will be no activities at the park on this day other than a stirring Fireworks show orchestrated once again by the Alan & Ramona Clapperton family’s son Bryan. He has taken over his dad’s gift to the town and is a certified Fireworks Master. His shows are loved by all who have seen them. They will be at 10:00 pm. We will be playing music over our system beginning at 8:00 pm for your dancing and listening pleasure. Please leave your animals home as they are not allowed on the park for the safety of all in attendance.
There may be some town rented booths open with drinks, food and glow. They are town approved and taxed sellers.
We would ask that you please don’t purchase anything from sellers that walk through the crowd. These sellers have not purchased a town license to sell (which pay for our costs so we can put on fireworks) and they do not pay taxes or fees as required. They are one of the primary reasons the town lost money last year and prompted the change to our traditional 4th of July celebration. If you tell them “NO” that will send a message to them that they will only be welcome if they play by the rules.
The park has been reserved for the day prior to the fireworks. BBQ’s and other cookers will not be allowed anywhere in the park unless you reserve one of the boweries through the town office or website. (801) 745-3420 www.Huntsvilletown.com
