Frisco’s Fabulous Fourth of July Weekend
Thursday, July 4, 2019

8:00 – 10:00am – Kids Fishing Derby sponsored by the Town of Frisco, Trouts Frisco and Colorado Parks and Wildlife at Frisco’s Meadow Creek Park (behind Walmart) staffed by and benefiting the Gore Range Chapter of Trout Unlimited. This free event is open to children 15 years old and younger. Participants must bring their own rods, bait/flies and an enthusiasm for catching the biggest fish. Registration is only available onsite on the morning of the event. There will be no fishing at Meadow Creek Pond from Saturday, June 29 – Thursday, July 4 at noon in order to prepare the pond for the fishing derby.
11:00am – 12:00pm – Free concert with the Summit Concert Band (Frisco Historic Park Gazebo)
12:30pm – Fabulous Fourth of July Parade (Main Street from Madison Ave. to 6th Ave.)
Frisco also invites kids to take a special spot in the parade and join in on the 19th annual bike parade. This is an opportunity for kids to display their creativity and patriotism. Kids are asked to bring their decorated bikes to the parking lot on the west side of Town Hall at Main Street and Madison Avenue at 11:45 a.m. on July 4. Kids 12 and under are eligible for the bike decorating contest and must be accompanied by their parents who must register and sign a waiver for each participating child. After registering, kids will show off their bikes to a small panel of judges and then join the parade.
Children five and under must be accompanied by a parent or an older child during the whole parade. Every child must wear a helmet to participate. If parents are not accompanying their children during the parade, then they must be prepared to meet them at the end of the parade route at Main Street and 6th Avenue.
If you have a fun, patriotic and/or whacky float, we invite you to be a part of it.
2:00pm – 4:00pm – Free concert – TBD at the Frisco Historic Park Gazebo
5:30pm – 7:30pm – Free concert – TBD at the Frisco Bay Marina
7:30pm-? – The time after the concert will be yours to spend with family and friends making your own July 4th fun. This year, 4th of July celebrations in Frisco will end with a concert at the Frisco Bay Marina from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
This is a departure from past years, when Frisco has ended the night with a fireworks display. Ongoing concerns about traffic, crowd and parking management and the subsequent the ability of first responders to reach emergencies, as well as persistent fire danger, forced Frisco to cancel fireworks and focus on creating new traditions.
We encourage you to enjoy this time and to make new memories with friends and family at your own BBQ or at one of Frisco’s great restaurants.
