They will also introduce public servants and elected officials. Fireworks America show with music will again be played on Townsquare Media's KIDO AM and FM. Event information is included below.

The history of the event which began in 1966 by Chuck Conners bringing back patriotism to our communities with Patriotic Parades. This is an old fashioned, patriotic, and religious festival honoring military, law enforcement fire and emergency personnel and other public servants. 

The emphasis is placed on the words and ideals of our nation's Founders, and special recognition is given for those who serve in the military, both active-duty and veterans.
