Get ready to Celebrate America at The Rock Ranch this weekend on Saturday, June 27. Prepare for a fantastic celebration featuring more than 35 attractions, including live music, games, fireworks, horse riding, and more!

Many praises have gone out to the The Rock Ranch’s Fireworks Extravaganza exhibit, claiming it as ‘The Best In The State,’ because of its dedication to low light pollution. During the show, no light will interfere with the outstanding display and beauty as sparks fly in the sky. The events, not including the fireworks, are set to begin at 10 a.m. and admission is $10 per person, but those who enter after 6 p.m. will be charged $25 per vehicle. Additionally, concessions will be available for purchase.

Lots of time and energy has been devoted to this event and The Rock Ranch wishes to dedicate this celebration to families, so that they might enjoy spending quality time with one another and create lasting memories. In fact, The Rock Ranch is hosting this lovely event a week ahead of Independence Day, so that our community has a greater opportunity to be a part of this exciting occasion. ‘

In an interview with Director of Communications, Jennifer Symmes, she expressed her understanding of the busyness that surrounds The Fourth of July, stating that numerous schedule conflicts are always linked to this tremendously festive holiday, and that The Rock Ranch wants to provide the best manner of avoiding any unnecessary troubles for those who desire to attend.
