Fourth of July
The Annual Fourth of July celebration is the most popular event and tradition that overflows with small town flavor. A new theme is chosen each year and carried through the day’s events. The 2017 theme is “Music of America”. The morning parade features neighborhoods competing for who carried out the theme best. In the afternoon, many neighborhoods take advantage of this opportunity to get reacquainted by organizing a block party. At dusk, a live band plays music and refreshments are available. The City lets off a firework display as the grand finale of the day. For more information about The City of Wyoming’s Fourth of July Celebration, call 513.679-4640 or email.
