Celebrate the 4th of July - 2017 Event Flyer

Nobody fires up the pride in the USA and the celebration of Independence Day like Clawson does! A tradition like no other since 1933, Clawson's Annual 4th of July celebration and festivities kicks off well before the grand finally of a spectacular fireworks display on the night of Independence Day. Come and join us. It's an experience you will never forget!

The 4th of July is right around the corner. We have many celebrations in preparation for July 3rd and 4th at the park! And of course, the week before the 4th, watch for the 1947 Mack Fire Truck that travels block by block to give rides to kids of all ages.
