After much debate, Orange Park FL is planning to have its 11th Annual American Pie 4th of July event. In the beginning, the town of Orange Park did not have enough money in its budget to hold the fireworks event. Some local businesses came forward and helped sponsor the event.  Well, after they obtained sponsorship there has been a lack of rain in the area and the county has a burn ban until July 8th, 2011. The last two weeks have been good to us and we have received rain about every day. So it looks like the fireworks show will go on.

 

The Apple Pie Celebration 4th of July starts at 11:00 am. It’s a free family event for all to enjoy. The event will be held along River Rd. in Orange Park FL and will run from Orange Park Kennel Club to Moosehaven. There will be plenty of free rides and games for children, a pie-baking contest, and an event of a pie-throwing contest at the local elected. It’s going to be a fun-filled day with plenty of events on schedule starting with the parade. There will be local music throughout the day with Molly Hatchet being the last to perform from 8:20 – to 9:30 just before the fireworks display.

No coolers will be allowed but, there will be plenty of vendors with ice-cold drinks and plenty of food to keep you well hydrated and not left feeling hungry throughout the day.

 

 

 

Thanks to the great sponsors and the Town of Orange Park for putting this great event together.
