In Payson, Arizona, the 4th of July celebration is one of our biggest events of the year! All of the events and games center around Green Valley Park, where the day starts early, at 8AM with a patriotic ceremony to honor men and women, both past and present, who have fought for our freedom. At 11AM, the vendors will open, offering treats such as ice cream, snow cones, coffee, and more. From 1PM to 3PM, games will be hosted with prizes going to the winning teams of some classic favorites like a three-legged race, a water balloon toss, and even a pie eating contest. Then visitors can head over to the Ramada and enjoy live music from 6PM up until 9PM when the main event begins — the fireworks show! Payson is well known for one of the most spectacular fireworks shows in the state; you certainly don’t want to miss out!
Whether you’re a local, looking forward to spending the day at Green Valley Park with friends and family, or a weekend traveler searching for a fun way to spend your holiday, come on down to Green Valley Park and enjoy the fun. And make sure to arrive early to get the best seats for the fireworks show!
Happy 4th of July Birthday Rory! A real Yankee Doodle Dandy!
