Be sure to check back here or with the coordinators of the events for any updates/changes due to COVID-19 mandates. Check out this list of 2021 July 4th fireworks in Clark County.

Ridgefield 4th of July Celebration
Sunday, July 4
If you are looking for some good ol’ fashioned family fun for the Fourth of July in Clark County, then you need to head to downtown Ridgefield! There are some changes this year, but they still are providing plenty of fun. The biggest change is they will not be having their parade with spectators. Instead, they are encouraging kids and dogs to come to the event all dressed up in their finest red, white and blue! Just be sure to pick up anything your dog leaves behind and keep them on leash.
The day starts with their annual fun runs at 8 a.m. This year the field is limited to 400, so sign up early! They will be having both a 5k and a 10k. The 5k costs $25 and the 10k $35. You can register online at the Ridgefield Independence Run website.
Then, stick around for the 4th of July Car Cruise-In! Starting at 10 a.m. and continuing until 3 p.m., classic and vintage cars will be lined up for your viewing pleasure on the streets outside of The Sportsman. If you have a classic car you would like to show off, call 360.887.0329 to register.
At the same time, be sure to check out the vendors, kids’ games and activities in Davis Park; vendors, old-fashioned games and kids games at the RACC on Pioneer; and finally street dancing at Overlook Park in the plaza and street corner led by Craig Brown. Not enough? How about a pie eating contest! That will happen at 2 p.m. with five categories for ages 6-15. Sign up the day of the event at the souvenir booth in Overlook Park.
