4th of July week and weekend is shaping up to be an active time for fun activities in Montrose.  Starting on Wednesday, July 3, a replica of the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Wall will on display in Montrose at Cerise Park through Saturday, July 8.

The annual Independence Day parade in Montrose happens at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 4, on Main Street from Pythian Avenue to Rio Grand Avenue.  The theme of this year’s parade is a ‘Salute to Veterans.’

Main in Motion will take place all day long on Main Street on July 4, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., featuring a variety of vendors and family friendly fun activities.

The annual July 4 community fireworks display is slated to begin at dusk with fireworks launched from Sunset Mesa.  There is a Fire Alert in effect in Montrose County and personal fireworks of any kind are not allowed.  The Sheriff and the Montrose Fire District will have the final say on whether the community fireworks show is allowed to launch.  That determination is made based on weather and potential fire conditions.

Summerfest happens on Saturday, July 6, from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. at Sunset Mesa.  There will be a plethora of fun activities for families including:  a chalk walk, hay bale toss, ego toss, carry your wife contest, ping pong ball drop contest, music by Craig Campbell and much more!
