Fourth of July Wrap-up

Float Contest Winners-websize

The city of Apache Junction Parks and Recreation department would like to say thank you to all of the families and agencies that came out and participated in this year’s Fourth of July Celebration! What a great day it was to celebrate Independence Day!Fireworks2

The fireworks show was presented by Republic Services yet again this year. The display was fabulous! The show really seemed to be extra enjoyable for everyone at the event (and the surrounding areas) this year coming off the year we have all had with no large scale special events. A huge thank you goes out to Republic Services for their continued event and community partnership with the city of Apache Junction for 11 straight years! Thank you to the band Corporate Lockdown, who entertained the crowd with some great music all night long, and to lead singer Jonathan Evertsen who provided a stirring rendition of the national anthem right before the fireworks display. Additional supporters of this event helped us to make sure that we had a fun and safe celebration: the Apache Junction Unified School District, the Apache Junction Police Department, the Superstition Fire and Medical District, Arizona Water Co., the Superstition Mountains Community Facilities District No. 1, and the Arizona Department of Forestry & Fire Management. Without the support of all of our sponsors and partners, this important community event would not have been possible.

Here is a list of activity results from our Fourth of July celebration:

Sand Volleyball Tournament 

Local teams competed in our annual Fourth of July Sand Volleyball tournament. The winners of the four-person co-ed tournament were Set Panthers, the runners-up were Set to Kill.

Float Decorating Contest

The Parks department also offered a Bike and Wagon Float Decorating contest during the festivities. Patriotic participants of all ages came out to show their pride for America, by decorating their favorite bike or wagon. The winners were:

Most Patriotic:           Lucee Earles             Best Decorated:       Xavier Govereau      

Most Creative:          Aydan Govereau      Best Overall:             Addison Karpi
