The Greenacres neighborhood will be hosting a Fourth of July celebration in the new Greenacres Park at 1311 N. Long Road all day Wednesday. The day begins with a children’s parade around the park at 11:30 a.m. Kids may decorate bikes, strollers or wagons using the theme “On the farm” or just use patriotic decorations. Prizes will be awarded.
Following the parade there will be free ice cream and musical performances by the Pages of Harmony and The Breakout Choir. The Spokane Valley Fire Department plans to have a fire engine there from noon to 2 p.m. Family games will begin at 2 p.m.
The evening includes a potluck dinner at 5 p.m. and those attending are asked to bring a salad, dessert or main dish to share. The band Face to Face will perform at 6 p.m. and a free family film will begin at dusk. People should bring blankets or chairs to sit on.
