Celebrate the 4th of July in Downtown Woodstock! The city has another exciting full schedule of events lined up for Woodstock residents again this year, starting with the Woodstock Freedom Run, a 5K that begins at 7:30a.m. The Woodstock Freedom Run event will host a 5K, a one-mile run and a kid’s run all in downtown Woodstock. For more information or to sign up, you can visit www.active.com or www.woodstockfreedomrun.com.
The huge parade kicks off at 10:00a.m. in Downtown Woodstock. The route will go down Highway 92 (old Walmart/Furniture for Less Store) and goes north on Main Street through Downtown Woodstock to Woodstock Elementary School on Rope Mill Road. After the parade, the holiday fun will continue in The Park at City Center (101 Arnold Mill Road) until 3p.m. Food, live music by the Parrot Island Band in the gazebo, games, a cake walk, arts and crafts and plenty of other offerings from local vendors will be available. Check out this great video from Main Street Woodstock from last year’s July 4th Celebration:
Fireworks will end the day at dusk in the Woodstock Square SuperTarget shopping center on at I-575 and Highway 92. Parking information and road closures for the race and other July 4th events can be found here.
