Fourth of July festivities begin in Delta and Fillmore with early morning breakfasts, followed by Main Street parades that highlight a rural lifestyle. After the parades, patriotic programs are held in the park, complete with speeches, songs and talent shows.
Games, entertainment, free swimming and other activities fill the afternoon in both communities. Fireworks at the Fillmore Fairgrounds are scheduled for dusk.
In Delta, a Demolition Derby is held at the County Fairgrounds and the night ends with fireworks! Derby tickets are both general admission and reserved.
Visitors enjoy the old-fashioned fun in both communities, and many guests return year after year to recapture the feeling of belonging that is missing in urban areas.
