Everyone likes a good old fashioned Fourth of July celebration.

You can enjoy one next week, the “Festival of America” a three-day affair, right here in the Grand Coulee Dam area.

The celebration kicks off on Thursday, July 4, with music in the park below the Visitor Center. There’s lots to do. A number of craft booths will be on hand and several food booths will fix a summer-time lunch or dinner for you.

All the particulars are in a special “Festival of America” celebration secrtion inside this week’s Star and Star Buyers’ Guide.

The music will take you right up to the Laser Light Show time and to cap it all off, about 10:30 p.m., there will be the giant fireworks display right off the top of Grand Coulee Dam on July 4.

Music in the park continues Friday and Saturday as do the craft and food booths, with tours of the dam and Laser Light Show adding to the celebration.

The chamber of commerce has added a number of family-friendly games, good for all ages, at this year’s celebration.

The event is sponsored by the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Coulee Dam casino, with music arranged for by the town of Coulee Dam.
