Get ready for fireworks and everything red, white and blue, because 4th of July 2018 is nearly here!
There are only a few things we ask for during this holiday: a great parade, fireworks, a place to cool off, and some good BBQ with family. If you’re planning to enjoy 4th of July family activities in Rancho Cordova, then we have all that and more! Take a look below for the top reasons to be a part of an epic celebration.
Rancho Cordova's legendary two-day 4th of July celebration featuring everything from a carnival to a parade is a must-see! Your trip for your family to Rancho Cordova must stop by the carnival for a ferris wheel ride, games and more. Here’s an insider tip... stop by on the night of July 3rd. Kick off the carnival at Hagan Park for a two whole days!
Preceding the Rancho Cordova 4th of July parade partake in the All America City 5K Run/Walk beginning at Mills Middle School. This is a family friendly event. So, bring the kids out to join in the fun or push your stroller along! Many of our Rancho Cordova hotels offer a free buffet breakfast to get you out the door and fed on time for the 9 a.m. start time.
It really isn’t a 4th of July celebration without a parade, right? It’s a good thing that you’ll spend the holiday in Rancho Cordova because there’s a 1.5 mile parade ready to bring all your Independence Day holiday dreams come true! An added bonus? It’s the community pride that makes this parade so special… not only are there prizes for those walking in the parade, but there’s a $5,000 grand prize for the best marching band, school band or youth band. If you want to be in the parade, or just come and celebrate with the community, find more information at the Rancho Cordova 4th of July website.
After spending the morning at the parade, cool off with some 4th of July family activities! Luckily, there are plenty of water activities surrounding the Rancho Cordova area. There are options available for all levels depending on the group you’re with… families should check out Folsom Lake or Lake Natoma where you can rent kayaks, paddle-boards and more, while adventure seekers have white water rafting and fly fishing available.
