Summer is almost here. Edgewater is preparing for its annual 4th of July event. The City and the Edgewater Professional Firefighters have teamed up to create a fun filled day for the community and visitors. On Saturday, June 8th there will be a golf tournament at Venetian Bay Golf Club to raise the funds to be used to ensure a spectacular fireworks display. There are still plenty of spots for teams. The support of local businesses has been key to the success of the tournament thus allowing the show to go on each year. Please call 424-2445 for more information regarding sponsorship or sign up to play.
There is plenty of room for vendors for the event. There will be no fee for vendors. Food, beverage and entertainment vendors are welcome. Each vendor will be responsible to provide their own power, if needed. Vendors are encouraged, if possible, to have an activity or game for children. Members of the Edgewater Professional Firefighters will be raffling off a new Perception Sport 9 ½ foot kayak with a paddle and personal floatation device leading up to 4th of July and at the event as well. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. All proceeds from the drawing will be going towards the cost of the fireworks. The drawing will be on the 4th of July just prior to the fireworks show and the winner does not need to be present.
The day will begin with a 5K walk/run along South Riverside Drive. All proceeds from the 5K will be donated to the Wounded Warrior project. There will be live entertainment, food and various vendors at Menard-May Park and George R. Kennedy Park beginning at 5:00 PM. The day will culminate with a spectacular fireworks show by Zambelli Fireworks that is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
Mark Thursday, July 4th on your calendar and come spend it with your family, friends and neighbors in Edgewater!!
