The city of Homewood and the Homewood Parks and Recreation will celebrate the Fourth of July in Downtown Homewood again this year. The streets in downtown Homewood will be closed to vehicles to make way for pedestrian traffic.
The event opens to the general public at 5 p.m. There will be a combination of inflatables and rides placed in the streets that will appeal to children of all ages. A DJ will provide music and interactive activities. Downtown Homewood is also a good location to view “Thunder on the Mountain” fireworks show from Vulcan Park. All rides and inflateables will end prior to the beginning of the fireworks show.
Tickets will be sold for the rides and inflatables. Proceeds from the event will benefit the H.E.A.T. program at the Homewood Parks and Recreation.
The H.E.A.T. program is for sixth-eighth graders in Homewood providing recreational opportunities for the participants in different areas of interest.
