Welcome to Ashland’s
2014 Fourth of July Celebration!
The theme for this year’s event is “This Land is Our Land”.
Now over 100 years old, this celebration is what makes Ashland a “great small town to live in”. The festivities begin early with a run, followed by a Parade, activities, food and afternoon entertainment at the Band shell in Lithia Park, and concludes late that evening with a spectacular fireworks display for all to see.
2014 Grand Marshal Announced!
The Grand Marshal epitomizes this year’s theme, ‘This Land is Our Land’, to the fullest extent. We’d like to congratulate, Alex and Danielle Amarotico and the Standing Stone Brewing Company as this year’s Grand Marshal. Personifying the stewardship of our land, Alex, Danielle and Standing Stone are being recognized for their leadership with their sustainable business practices, investing in solar, their Farm and true ‘farm to table’ offerings at their restaurant and brewery. Recently honored at one of the Top 100 Green Businesses to work for in Oregon, Standing Stone gives back to the community and its employees by offering one of the first employee bike programs in Ashland. Congratulations and we shall see you at the Parade! www.standingstonebrewing.com.
