Charlais Community Network (CCN) once again is putting on a July 4th Celebration at John Marty Park at the east end of our neighborhood. Arbor Ridge HOA along with our partners at Association Managment Services (AMS) and our new Landscaper Pacific Landscape Maintenance has donated to help with this volunteer event.

Everyone is welcome, and all activities are free! Enjoy celebrating with friends and neighbors! If you’re in town, you won’t want to miss this event. Please volunteer to help out during the celebration. We need community help to keep all the activities open. Volunteering is fun – you can paint faces, supervise a bounce house, hand out treats, etc. 

Event Schedule – Thursday, July 4, 2024

  • 9:45 AM Parade line-up on Charlais Street (children and families walk or ride in parade)
  • 10 AM Opening ceremony
  • 10:15 AM Parade route through the Charlais neighborhood (see map below)
  • 10:30 AM Festival in the Park: inflatables, treats, games, etc.

Please Volunteer!

CCN relies on community volunteers to help supervise activities and keep them open throughout the celebration. We need adults to supervise inflatables, and we welcome teens or adults to help with games, treats, face painting, and other activities. Sign up here to help.

Super bonus: Volunteers get these benefits, which you can pick up at the Charlais Community Network information booth when you check in for your shift: 

  • The first 10 volunteers who sign up get a $10 McBee’s gift card for ice cream creations to cool down your summer! (Thank you, McBee’s!
  • A “front of the line” pass for each of your children to use at a line of their choice

Donations Welcome

There is no cost for any festival activities. The Charlais Community Network collects donations to cover the festival costs. Thanks to all those who have already contributed. Look for donation buckets during the event or find us on VENMO (@Charlais-Community).
