Fourth at the Fountain; A 4th of July Celebration!


On July 4, 2015 we celebrate the 239th anniversary of our American Independence, and what better way to show our American pride then with an outdoor celebration of our freedom!  Ordinary 4th of July festivities consist of BBQ’s, floating in the pool, rocket pops and of course a fireworks display, but Fountain Hills is no ordinary community and you can bet that our Fourth at the Fountain celebration isn’t either!  Begging the question; what do parachutes, water slides, rock walls, and fireworks all have in common?  All of those, and much more, will be featured at the Town of Fountain Hills Fourth at the Fountain event!

Our one of a kind community is putting on a one of a kind event with food, fun, fireworks, and of course, our World Famous Fountain!  Fourth at the Fountain festivities will also include: live DJ, a patriotic parachuting demonstration, bounce houses, a beer garden, food and beverages, and last but not least, fireworks show starting at 9:30 p.m. over our World Famous Fountain!  This year we also welcome the addition of water slide and a 25-foot tall rock climbing wall to the kid’s area.  The event will take place from 5:00 p.m. to – 10:00 p.m. in Fountain Park.

Start a new tradition by joining us for our star-spangled Fourth at the Fountain Independence Day celebration in Fountain Park!    Enjoy your Fourth at our Fountain!
