Cascade Township to Host All-Day July Fourth Celebration
Cascade Township, Michigan, June 20, 2018 – Cascade Charter Township will again host its all-day July Fourth Celebration, offering fun for all ages.
Taking place on Independence Day, Cascade’s July Fourth Celebration will feature games, carnival rides and music. New this year, attendees will be able to experience the flyby of an L-39 Albatros Jet, flown by the Hopper Flight Group along 28th Street from east to west. All activities are weather permitting.
“The July Fourth Celebration has been a staple in Cascade Township for decades,” said Rob Beahan, Township supervisor. “Throughout the years, the event has only gotten better, offering numerous activities and enjoyment for anyone in our community. We look forward to a large turnout again this year as we meet to celebrate our Independence Day.”
From a duel zipline and bumper cars to a rock wall, a petting zoo and face painting, this year’s event will feature more than 30 different games and activities. Readers will rejoice at the Kent District Library Friends of the Library book sale at the Cascade branch, which is set to feature thousands of different books ranging in topics and genres.
Families will also enjoy a bike parade before the traditional float and vehicle parade and be able to relax with musical entertainment throughout the event. The day will conclude with a fireworks display to celebrate the nation’s independence.

“We have been planning this event for several months now, and it would certainly not be possible without the support of our many sponsors,” said Cascade Fire Chief Adam Magers. “This celebration is truly a remarkable demonstration of community support and engagement.
