Monday, July 4, 2022 – Breakfast, Parade, Festival, & Concert 

The festivities will continue Monday, July 4, 2022, with the return of the pancake breakfast, parade, festival, and concert. The Kiwanis will be serving a delicious pancake breakfast from 7:00 a.m. -10:00 a.m. at Memorial Park. At 9:00 a.m. there will be a flag raising ceremony that includes presentations for the Grand Marshal, Honored Citizen, Honored Community Group, Community Heroes, and Rising Star honorees. The festival featuring information booths, kids activities, live music, and food vendors will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m. The T. Willard Hunter Speakers Corner will run from 10:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The annual parade will begin at its new time, 10:00 a.m. at Memorial Park and travel south on Indian Hill, west on Harrison and end at Larkin Park.

On the evening of July 4, 2022, the community is invited to a free concert at Memorial Park. The concert replaces the previously scheduled Fireworks Show. The City is under new water restrictions due to the ongoing drought. Preparation for the fireworks show requires extensive watering in the days leading to the show, accounting for approximately 650,000 gallons of water.  In late May, Staff made the difficult decision to cancel the Fireworks Show in light of the drought and replace it with a free community concert.  The Kiwanis Club will be serving up BBQ items beginning at 5:00 p.m.   Claremont favorites, The Ravelers, will take the stage at 6:00 p.m. and perform until 8:00 p.m.
