Don’t miss Cordova’s Old Time 4th of July Celebration.
As always this is a free event!
Come join the whole community in celebrating our nation’s birth. The entire celebration will be held on Main Street.
The day kicks off with the Kelp Box Derby at 10:00am (racers please register on Main Street at 9:30am). Kids’ Games follow at 11:00am. There’s a dunk tank, egg toss, 3 legged races, and lots more fun for the whole family! At the close of the games the National Anthem is sung and then, in true Cordova fashion, we eat.
The community pot luck meal is highlighted by Copper River and Prince William Sound Salmon on the grill provided so generously by all our local seafood processors! Enjoy homemade desserts at the Pioneer Dessert Social and then work it all off with Square Dancing accompanied by live bluegrass tunes.
Finally wrap it all up by joining our All-Hands cleanup of Main Street. Many hands make light work!
