Riverside’s Fourth of July Celebration will take place this Friday on Independence Day. The city will continue the patriotic tradition of having Independence Day events during the day and fireworks at night.
The celebration will start at 5:00 p.m. with Evergreen Memorial Historic Cemetery’s Fourth of July Front Row Fireworks. This family-friendly event will have free activities for kids, including Duck Drag races, and vendors offering food. In-n-out Burgers will also have a stand. There will be live music and a “Little Miss Firecracker” Pageant for ages 5-10.
Evergreen Memorial Historic Cemetery is a non-profit dedicated to preserving one of Riverside’s first cemeteries. It is the resting place of Riverside founders and veterans starting from the Civil War.
Front Row Fireworks is five dollars for adults and three for kids. In addition, you can take a walking tour of the historic cemetery for five dollars. All proceeds go back to the non-profit.
The fireworks for the city will start at 9:00 p.m. You can choose from two locations: La Sierra Park and Mt. Rudidoux. Mt. Rudidoux’s fireworks will have a special grand finale dedicated to the American Youth Soccer Organization’s (AYSO) fifty-year anniversary. There are AYSO games every day this weekend.
The fireworks are free for everybody.
The Fourth of July is a day to remember our Founding Fathers and spend time with family and friends. We at Greenberg & Greenberg want to wish everyone a wonderful weekend celebrating with loved ones.
