Across the small towns of America, one of the most patriotic and fun things to enjoy on the Fourth of July is a parade. Napa, a long-time example of a small, well-connected town, is no different. Every year, the town hosts a parade to celebrate July 4th.
The Napa Fourth of July parade boasts floats, decorated cars, and live bands. The parade starts at 11:00 a.m. and you can review the parade route for your favorite spot. After the parade, make your way over to the fairgrounds for a full day of games. At 5:00 p.m. the ice cream churn-a-ment is sure to be great fun and the perfect reward after the summer heat starts to melt away. After the sun sets, the fireworks spectacle starts at 9:30 p.m.
Every year, the wine country is famous for its specials and deals – especially if you’re staying for the weekend.
There are so many wonderful things to enjoy in Napa and a stay at the Napa Valley Hotel and Suites puts you right in the middle of the action.
The Napa Valley is rich in American history. Here are a few facts you may not know:
- Napa was founded on Rancho Entre Napa by Nathan Coombs in 1847.
- The first commercial Napa Valley winery was opened in 1859 by a man named John Patchett.
- Napa County was formed as part of the original counties of California when the state became a part of the U.S. in 1850.
- In 1858, the great silver rush began in Napa Valley as miners flocked to the hills to the east.
No 4th of July celebration is complete without a parade, and this year’s parade route goes right by the Napa Valley Hotel and Suites. What better way to celebrate the birth of our nation than by staying at the heart of one of the most amazing wine, agriculture, and mining regions?
