Golden 4th of July: food, music, hot rods, and fireworks

The Farmers Market will run, as usual, from 8-1 in the parking lot at Illinois & 10th Streets.

The Golden Lions Club will host an all-day party in Lions Park, complete with prizes, food, live music, beer, and free rides and face painting for the kids. Buy some raffle tickets for a chance to win one of over 200 prizes, including the grand prize of $1000 donated by the Lions Club! You’ll see Lions Club members selling tickets in front of various businesses –Meyer Hardware, King Soopers, and others, as well as at the Farmers Market on Saturday morning. You don’t need to be present to win.

The Golden Super Cruise will run today, theoretically from 5-9, but you’re likely to see classic cars around town all day.  The epicenter of the event is South Golden Road.

The fireworks show will begin around 9:30 p.m. (weather-permitting).  Lions Park offers a great viewing spot, though they can be watched from many vantages around town.
