We would like to invite everyone in the Greater Tehachapi Valley to a fun-filled, patriotic July 4th celebration and Hot Dog Festival. With the high gas prices, it's a good year to stay home and participate in the various activities going on around the city. It will be a grand old-fashioned "All American" Fourth of July with fun for the whole family.
Bring your lawn chair and sunscreen and join in our games and the children's parade, listen to music from our own local musicians, and catch the fireworks display at the football stadium or rodeo grounds. With 5,000 people or more attending the various activities there will be something for everyone. There is no admission charge to watch any City-sponsored event, including the music performances in Central Park and the football stadium.
