Claremont to Host July 4th Celebration:

The Claremont Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce the Annual July 4th Celebration at Monadnock Park on Saturday, July, 4th. The excitement will begin at 6:00 PM with many local vendors on hand selling food and drinks. “We are excited to have Smoke & Mirrors, a local six piece band, playing a variety of music including classic rock, country, swing and pop. The band is great for dancing or listening to and provides an enjoyable experience for all audiences,” explained Mark Brislin, Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Claremont. “July 4th is a great time to bring the community together and celebrate,” explained Brislin. Coming back this year will be a demonstration from the Granite State Disc Dogs. Come watch these high-flying canines show off their skills while they work with their trainers to pull off some of the coolest frisbee tricks you have ever seen. All of these fun events will lead up to the spectacular firework show at 9:30 PM to conclude the evening.

Parking will be available along Broad Street and Pleasant Street. Only handicapped and authorized vendor parking will be allowed at Monadnock Park. In the event of inclement weather, the rain date for this event will be on July 5th.
