2015 Fourth of July Events Roundup

Skies will be filled with the rockets’ red glares across Richmond. In the city, The Diamond and Byrd Park will hold their annual, megaboom celebrations, leaving canines for miles either cowering in horror or barking like crazed Paul Reveres. Out in Chesterfield, nonlethal bombs will burst at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds. North on Interstate 95, there will be a host of family-friendly activities, including a daytime walking parade, apple pie and patriotic pet contests, and music by the Hanover Concert Band at the Hanover Arts and Activities Center in Ashland. For history buffs, Pamplin Historical Park and the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier will hold a day filled with costumed interpretations, history tours, Civil War rifle and cannon demonstrations and commemoration ceremonies. And if you want to get a head start on July Fourth, there are free fireworks the day before at Brown’s Island.
