Frisco 4th of July human-powered, non-motorized parade on Frisco Main Street – This year don’t just watch the parade, be a part of the parade!
- Everyone is invited to be a part of the parade, including dressed up dogs, people walking, horses, people on bikes, horses on bikes, dogs on bikes, happy cats, people on scooters and skateboards, grumpy cats… as long as it doesn’t have a motor… you get the idea. Everyone and everything is welcome, as long as it doesn’t have a motor!
- Well behaved dogs are all welcome and encouraged! Please remember to have your pets on leash and to bring poop bags for clean up!
- Please decorate your bike, dog, people… you get the idea… before you arrive. There will NOT be decorating supplies onsite.
- Candy throwing is encouraged! Confetti or any other materials that are not consumable are not allowed, as cleaning them up is virtually impossible in our beautiful town, and they will be found for years to come, especially if they are plastic.
- A high school marching band from Minnesota will also be joining this year’s parade.
- Free parade registration now open and encouraged, but not required so just show up if you want to participate.
- Parade route- After checking in at the tent at Main Street and Madison Avenue, all participants will be lined up to begin making their way east down Main Street towards 6th Avenue. At the intersection of Main Street and 6th Avenue, participants will be turning right off Main Street onto a closed block of 6th Avenue to safely exit the parade route.
4:00pm – 6:00pm
Concert in the Historic Park Gazebo featuring the Saucy Bees, a funky four piece band with some of Colorado’s favorite musicians playing an eclectic blend of danceable and classic favorites.
CANCELLED– Fireworks over Dillon Reservoir – On Tuesday, April 19, the Frisco July 4th fireworks display’s special event permit application was denied by the Dillon Reservoir Recreation Committee, which includes Summit County, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Denver Water, the US Forest Service (abstained from voting), and the Towns of Dillon and Frisco. The permit was denied by a majority of the committee because of impacts on traffic, watershed, and wildlife; ongoing major road construction in Summit County and on I70; anticipated fire danger; and a lack of consensus among the Towns and Summit County.
*All activities/events included in the 4th of July schedule are subject to change.
An Old Fashioned Day With Friends and Family
The focus of 4th of July can still be on spending the day celebrating in a simpler, small town way with friends and family. There are many great ways to celebrate Independence Day in Frisco including backyard BBQs, hikes with family, fishing, getting out on Dillon Reservoir, toasting to our independence at local restaurants, strolling Main Street, trying your hand at disc golfing on our free course, going on a chuck wagon dinner ride, taking a bike ride on over 55 miles of recreation path or on miles of singletrack dirt trails, and challenging yourself at our free bike park.
