Celebrate the 4th with a bang

​Word has it, this Independence Day in the Forks will be sizzling.

No, I’m not talking about the temps…it’s the 2016 Sertoma 4th of July Festival & Fireworks show that will be lighting up Town Square and The Greenway! Of course, we’re also expecting beautiful, sunny weather, as well.

In addition to all the awesome attractions, pocket parks, shopping and dining our Simply Grand Downtown District has to offer every single day, this iconic celebration (in its 54th year) adds even more to love about our two towns!
