The 4th of July is a great time to celebrate with family. With COVID – 19 concerns many communities have canceled events in celebration of the 4th. There are still some celebrations and of course you can enjoy fireworks at home as well!

Although COVID-19 has forced the city to cancel the Fourth of July Parade and Festival, and the Patriotic Concert, Lexington Parks & Recreation has several new ideas:
- Bluegrass 10K Virtual Race: The Bluegrass 10,000 is on, but virtually. Register by July 1 online for $35 at lexingtonky.gov. Run between July 1 and July 7, then enter your time online. Almost 900 racers have already signed up. Shirts designed by Cricket Press are available for curbside pick-up.
- Door or Mailbox Decorating Contest: Organize a door or mailbox decorating party in your neighborhood. On the Fourth of July, walk together as a family and check out all the creations! There will be a contest with the Mayor picking the winner.
- Week of Festive Crafts: Parks will plan different crafts for every day of Fourth of July week. Ideas will be posted on the Parks’ Artworks at the Carver Center page.
