If you are looking for an Independence Day celebration in a quintessential small mountain town, then Frisco’s Fabulous 4th of July will fit the bill with big town amenities and great entertainment, but a small town feel. Frisco knows how to throw a party filled with activities for the whole family on Frisco’s charming Main Street and at the beautiful Frisco Bay Marina.

Start the day off right with a pancake breakfast and end the day with a fireworks display over Dillon Reservoir. In between you will find: a hometown parade with a kids’ bike decorating contest, great concerts, a block party feel on Main Street and even a free fishing derby for the kids sponsored by Bass Pro Shops.
