The Town of Parker is excited to bring back in full our traditional Independence Day event – Parker Stars and Stripes Celebration. Save the date for Monday, July 4, pack your blankets and lawn chairs, and set up for an evening packed with family fun.
Salisbury Park grounds will be open to attendees with the central multi-purpose field featuring the music stage. Free event activities include a concert of 80s hits from 6 Million Dollar Band, walk-around entertainers and a carnival. Low-cost activities include a tot train, face painting, bungee jumping and light-up toy vendor, plus a variety of food vendors.
While this is a free event to attend, there is an onsite parking fee of $10/vehicle that will be collected at park entry, cash only. Parking is first-come, first-served and is expected to fill to capacity.
In lieu of fireworks, this year’s celebration will conclude with a new and innovative 150-drone light show. The 12-minute aerial display will start at 9:30 p.m. and feature multiple designs and choreographed movements from a fleet of drones set to patriotic music. Drones will fly 400 feet into the air above Salisbury Park and be visible from up to two miles away, depending on vantage point. Please note, the optimal viewing experience will be from Salisbury Park at the event.
General Admission Lawn: The General Admission lawn will be open for all first-come, first-served basis where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the band, partake in pay-for-play low-cost activities, a free carnival alley and walk around entertainment.
