Valley 4th Harrisonburg

There’s something about July 4th that sets it apart as one of the best holidays of the year. Maybe it’s the all-day consumption of picnic food or the way the community comes out and enjoys the summer heat and sun. Maybe it’s the fun activities, the extra touch of patriotism in the air, or the way the red-white-and-blue color palette is crammed into every food creation and clothing choice. Or maybe it’s because all these things are perfectly blended together for a day-long celebration with a slam-bang finish of a fireworks show.

To prepare for this extra special holiday, check out the jam-packed list of amazing activities below and get ready to celebrate July 4th, Harrisonburg-style, which in our opinion is the best way to celebrate!
