 It’s almost time for the City of Prattville’s annual 4th of July Celebration and patrons can expect that the holiday will definitely go off with a bang! There will be a day full of fun, barbeque, music, and fireworks. 

The celebration will begin on Monday morning, July 4, with a parade in Downtown Prattville at 9:00 a.m. The theme for the parade is Hometown Heroes and the Grand Marshal will be Colonel Harold Howell. He is a World War II veteran who served in both the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force and turned 100 this year. 

The parade will end at Pratt Park where the Lions Club will have barbeque, arts and crafts and live music by the Jukebox Allstars until 2:00 p.m. The much anticipated “Cardboard Boat Races” will return this year. Beginning at 10:30am, teams will create their competition boats out of cardboard and duct tape. Prizes include: Longest floating boat, the Titanic award for most dramatic sink, most creative and more. The Pratt Pool and Splash Pad will also be open for more family fun. 

The grand finale of the day will be a magnificent fireworks display. The fireworks will be launched at 9pm from the Clock Tower off Highway 82 at Legends Circle. There will be ample parking in the surrounding parking lots of the Prattville Town Center (Target), The Cotton Exchange (Hobby Lobby), and High Point (Belk/JC Penney) shopping areas. Find your space and enjoy the fireworks as they light up the night sky.
