Independence Day Celebration
Anthem Community Park
Thousands of people will come together on Tuesday, July 3, at the Anthem Community Park Ball Fields for Anthem’s Independence Day Celebration. Sponsored this year by ValleyCrest Landscape Maintenance and Associated Asset Management, the free event starts at 6:00 p.m. and includes a fireworks display scheduled for 9:30 p.m. The Anthem Independence Day Celebration attracts 15,000 to 18,000 people from all over the metro-Phoenix area.
Guests to the celebration will enjoy:
• Performance by Third Anthem Idol
Live entertainment will include a performance by Anthem’s third “Anthem Idol” who will sing the National Anthem live and a cappella at about 9:25 p.m. immediately following a presentation of the Daisy Mountain Fire Department Color Guard.
• Plenty of Food and Drinks
Plenty of food vendors will be available, offering hamburgers and hot dogs to barbecue, kettle corn and fry bread. Most food vendors will have non-alcoholic beverages for sale, and the Anthem Rotary will host their Beer Garden. Be sure to save room for dessert: sno-cones, ice cream and funnel cake are just some options that will be on hand.
• Activities, Entertainment and Rides
A DJ will spin popular tunes, emcee Persephone Dimson will lead the crowd in various dances, and traveling stilt walkers will entertain the crowd. Attendees can play in wet and dry bounce houses and slides on an unlimited basis with the purchase of a $10 bracelet that can be bought at the event, or in advance at the Anthem Community Center. Other rides will available, as well as the Daisy Mountain Railroad, at an additional cost. Patriotic glow necklaces and temporary tattoos will be on sale to allow revelers to show their party spirit.
After everyone has had their fill of fun, food and festivities, it will be time to sit back and watch as the night sky lights up with a spectacular fireworks display. The first flare is set to go off at 9:30 p.m., and the show is certain to not disappoint.
