2018 will be the 45th year for this special family tradition.
Featuring live music, dancing, free games and relays, food, raffles, the community comes together, with blankets and picnics, to celebrate Independence Day.
Bands start to play, along with the dancing, at 6 pm. A flag ceremony, led by fife and drum, precedes the singing of the Star Spangled Banner and then the Blast-off of the fireworks show begins at approximately 9:40 pm.
This is the Kiwanis Club of Sebastopol's major fundraising event. More than 4000 people attend each year.
Numerous generous sponsors, volunteers, the Sebastopol Fire and Police Departments, all contribute to its continued success. Over 30 community organizations are direct beneficiaries of our Club’s donations.
The cost for admittance is: General $10.00; Children (6 – 11) $5.00; ages 5 and under are free.
OUR BAND LINE-UP FOR 2018
Buzzy Martin & The Buzztones
Volker Strifler’s creative style of Blues/Roots are innovative explorations into Rock, Jazz, and Latin rhythms, with several stops in New Orleans along the way! This German-born guitarist-singer plays with a perfect blend of fire and restraint along with the clarity of Duane Allman. The pace is fast, often frenetic, but the mixture of styles has the feel of controlled turbulence, drawing you into a whirlwind of tightly meshed crosscurrents. Most of all – the music is FUN!
