From fireworks to the delicious smells of barbecue wafting through the air, July 4 fills Packwood and Randle with pomp and circumstance unmatched by few other holidays. While many people celebrated at home last year, 2021 Independence Day is a time to enjoy community events. Packwood and Randle offer several fun events to celebrate the 4th of July, from fireworks to food and more.
Packwood’s Fireworks in the Sky
July 3 and 4 in Packwood is sure to be fun and festive thanks to Packwood Improvement Club. On July 3 enjoy Fireside Music in the Park with Bryson Evans from 6-8 p.m. at the Packwood Community Park. After the music, don’t miss the fireworks in front of the Packwood Community Hall and Fire Department starting at dark. People are free to park in both parking lots and should be cautious to avoid parking on the highway. On Sunday, July 4 from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., get your grub on with the annual chicken BBQ at the Community Hall Park. Adults are $10 and kids 12 and under are $6.
Randle Big Bottom Blast
Hosted by Randle Firefighters’ Association, celebrate Independence Day with the Big Bottom Blast. The details of the event are still in the planning stages but what is known is visitors are invited to enjoy the flea market at the fire station Friday through Monday. There is possibly going to be a breakfast Saturday and Sunday. What is for sure is the fireworks show on July 3.
While our state is supposed to open on June 30 fully, be sure to check back with all event organizers for any up-to-date changes as we get closer to the holiday. Happy Independence Day!
