High fire danger has snuffed the annual July Fourth fireworks in Indian Hills for the straight second year, but the local fire department still plans to host a variety of patriotic activities on the holiday.
Indian Hills Fire Rescue will host its annual Independence Day fete on Thursday, July 4, with a pancake breakfast, live music, a beer garden and the always-popular parade on Parmalee Gulch Road.
The schedule is as follows:
• Pancake breakfast, 7 to 11 a.m.
• Air Life helicopter fly-in, 10 a.m.
• Parade, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Food vendors, 4 p.m. to dusk
• Beer garden, 4 to 8:30 p.m.
• Live music with Austin Young, 4 p.m. to dusk
All events are adjacent to Indian Hills Fire Station 1 at 4476 Parmalee Gulch Road and across the street at Arrowhead Park. The day’s events are organized by members of the Indian Hills Fire Rescue EMS team and Fire Boots, as well as local community members.
Parmalee Gulch Road will be closed on July 4 from 10:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. between Parmalee Elementary School and the Indian Hills post office to accommodate the parade.
