JOIN US FOR SHOW LOW’S 4TH OF JULY PARADE, WET ZONE AND FREEDOMFEST
Annual signature events are patriotic salutes to our nation!

SHOW LOW, Ariz. (June 15, 2017) – Celebrate our nation’s birthday on Tuesday, July 4, through the City of Show Low’s family-friendly signature events — the annual parade in the morning, a wet zone to follow and FreedomFest in the afternoon.

Find your spot for the annual parade, which begins at 9 a.m. along the Deuce of Clubs, traveling eastbound from Owens and turning south on White Mountain Road to Hall Street. This year’s parade theme is “Made in America,” with representatives from local public safety agencies leading the parade as grand marshals. A treat this year is a grand display of family floats in homage to Show Low’s founding families.

​Applications for interested parade entrants are still available and must be submitted by Monday, June 26. The final deadline for applications is 3 p.m. June 29, but will be subject to a $25 late fee.

Expect road closures and detours during the parade. The Deuce of Clubs (US 60) will be closed between Whipple Road and S. White Mountain Road (SR 260) from 8:45 until approximately 11:30 a.m., with eastbound and westbound detours established. The eastbound detour begins at the Deuce of Clubs and Whipple Road intersection, with the Deuce of Clubs closing to traffic at this location. Traffic will be routed to Whipple Road to Central Avenue and south on Woolford Road to S. White Mountain Road, where the White Mountain Entertainment Show Low 5 movie theaters are located. Westbound traffic on the Deuce of Clubs will be routed south on S. White Mountain Road to Woolford Road are nd return to the Deuce of Clubs via Whipple.
​Following the end of the parade, the city will provide a “wet zone” at no charge until 1:30 p.m. at Frontier Fields, 600 N. 9th Place. All ages who want to frolic among the sprinklers, cool off with a good soak from Timber Mesa Fire and Medical District’s fire truck or enjoy exciting water activities are invited to come and have fun.

​At 3 p.m., head over to the Show Low football stadium complex, 500 W. Old Linden Road, for the popular FreedomFest festivities — with free admission — planned to last well into the evening. Relish tasty fare, including wood-fired pizza, Indian tacos, funnel cakes, kettle corn, Mexican food, pretzels, cotton candy, shaved ice, hand-crafted soda and other delectable treats. The Made in America Fun Zone will be in full swing from 3 to 8:30 p.m., featuring a double-lane mega slide, rock wall, wrecking ball, adrenaline rush obstacle course, rock and roll joust, bounce houses and much more. Unlimited ride wristbands are only $10 each.

Live concerts begin at 3 p.m. with Strange Brew (classic rock), Arizona Blacktop at 4:15 (a mix of vintage honky-tonk, modern classic rock, country and pop), Plum Krazy at 5:30 (classic rock, blues, alternative, country twang), culminating with headliner, Drew Cooper & The Cavalry, performing at 7:30 p.m. and again after the spectacular fireworks display, which begins at 9 p.m. (weather permitting). In addition, parade winners will be announced at 6:45 and, beginning at 7, the Show Low High School Choir will perform “God Bless America” and the “Star-Spangled Banner” along with a flag-raising ceremony.

In this episode Jacob Wilcock, Community Development Specialist talks about the 19th Annual Project Clean Sweep and Kirk Webb, Community Risk Manager talks about how to prevent wildfires.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The 19th annual Project Clean Sweep, the free citywide beautification program, kicks off in mid-May and continues into June.  Participation in the program is free to those presenting proof of residency either a City of Show Low utility bill showing current refuse service or a valid driver’s license listing a physical address within the city limits.

Commercial businesses are not eligible to participate in this program. Construction materials and hazardous materials (liquid paints, oils, pesticides, herbicides and household cleaning products) are strictly prohibited.

To accommodate our citizens, Project Clean Sweep is split into different weeks according to the following schedule:

* Monday, May 15–Saturday, May 20, and Monday, May 22–Saturday, May 27, for Green Waste Dumping, which allows you to drop off pine needles, tree limbs, grass clippings and organic materials for free at Dirty Deeds Green Waste, 890 Cinder Pit Road behind Perkins Cinders, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. including Saturday.  Do not mix in garbage, plastic, rocks, dirt, glass or other trash with the green waste.  You may also drop o wood products, including pallets, treated and untreated lumber, and painted and unpainted lumber.

* Monday, June 5 – Thursday, June 8 for Bulky Item Pickup, with city employees picking up any large unwanted appliances (empty refrigerators or freezers of all contents before placing at curbside), furniture, tires, etc.  Place the items in front of your residence by 7 a.m. on your regularly scheduled trash collection day.  For green waste, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of free dumping at Dirty Deeds. If you do put out green waste, branches and limbs must be less than 4 feet long and bundled.

Ready, Set, Go! designed to help us prepare for wild fires

The White Mountains is known for being an outdoor paradise, with breathtaking scenery, spectacular wildlife, clean air and picture-postcard vistas.  Despite our beautiful surroundings, wild fires are an inevitable act of nature given the area’s topography, tree densities and high-desert weather conditions.  Wildfires are indiscriminate, burning what ever lies within their path.  Consequently, it is important for those of us who live here to take whatever steps we can to reduce re danger and to protect ourselves in the event of an emergency.

Timber Mesa Fire and Medical District has taken the lead, continuing a program launched in 2012 called Ready,Set, Go! (RSG).  Ready, Set, Go! is designed to educate us on how to live in the wildland-urban interface and protect our homes and families.  The “ready” concept teaches us to prepare our homes and properties well in advance of a wildland fire.  Thee “set” concept elevates a family’s situational awareness—when re weather occurs or when wildland fires are burning—to monitor the enviroment and to be ready to evacuate.  The "go" concept alerts us to implement a family disaster plan immdediately, by leaving well before the fire arrives.

One facet of the RSG program is a property assessment.  District personnel go door-to-door visiting homeowners, answering questions and conducting an assessment
of the property to determine fire danger.  Another program component includes valuable information to assist individuals and families with emergency planning, which includes tips on creating an emergency kit (with essentials such as non-perishable food, water, medicine, clothing, hygiene items, etc.) and a step-by-step evacuation plan (should one ever be needed).  In addition, District staff make presentations to homeowners’ associations, neighborhood groups, community organizations and government entities, offering the same helpful advice and tools.

As we have learned from past experience, wild res are potentially an extremely serious threat in the White Mountains.  It is everyone’s responsibility to protect one’s homes and families by making the necessary preparations. In the long run, it is less expensive to prevent wildfires than it is to deal with wild res and the devastation that follows them.

For more information or to schedule a community presentation, call Community Risk Manager Kirk Webb at 368-6112.
