So we don’t have fireworks this year, so what? We still live in an amazing community. We have so much to celebrate and be grateful for. I say we make this the best FourthFest yet, with or without fireworks!
Let’s get in the spirit early. Hang your flags out NOW. Let everybody know that you’re ready to celebrate! Meet in front of the community center at 9:30am. The parade takes off at 10am. If you’ve never been to one of our parades before, then you should probably know we have decorated bikes, wagons, trailers, DOGS, KIDS, hats, motorcycles and floats. Contact Matt Fuller at 251-9814 for float approval and parade questions and also if you’re interested in volunteering at this event. WB events are huge and the MUD always needs volunteers!
When the parade returns to the Community Center, we kick off a FULL day of events.
There’ll be children’s activities throughout the park from 11-2pm. Come win prizes at games like beanbag toss, balloon darts, milk bottle throw, soccer sick, and washer toss. Free admission to KF Pool and games there from 12-3pm. The Kiddy Train will be all revved up for the Fourth and giving rides and Miss Jellybean Balloon Clown will be on hand from 11-3pm to entertain. Caricature artists provided by Wells Branch Community Church will be in the courtyard from 11-3pm and there’ll be inflatables for the kids to play on in the park. ALL FOR FREE!!!
Live entertainment starts at 11am and goes through 5pm under the big tent. There’ll be music, a ventriloquist, a magician and more music! Throughout the day, concessions will be available offering a variety of items to enjoy. For a complete list of entertainment and food, please see below.
The Silent Auction is back this year and benefits the WBNA. Money raised from this event helps fund the Easter Egg Hunt, National Night Out, Friday night at Luminary Fest and all of the educational and safety seminars we put on throughout the year. Come peruse all of our goodies and start placing your bids at soon as the parade returns. Contact Debbie Brown at 422-2372 or SilentAuction@wbna.us if you have an item or service you’d like to donate.
Although we may not have fireworks, there’s still so much to do in the neighborhood to celebrate Independence Day! Come show your spirit and remember YOU make Wells Branch GREAT!
