Ramona Rotary’s July 4th Family Picnic & Fireworks

The family event attracts thousands to the fields behind Olive Peirce Middle School as well as to the surrounding area where gatherings are held and the fireworks are visible.

The old-fashioned, community-spirited celebration from 5 to 9:30 p.m. brings the town together for food, games, family activities, music, and the grand finale — the 20-minute skyshow synchronized to music on KYXY 96.5FM Radio. So turn those radios on at 9 p.m. and enjoy the show that Ramona made happen!
