2016 Sees Continued Growth of Stanardsville’s Independence Day Events

This year, the Stanardsville Independence Day Committee (SIDC) is proud to announce a partnership with the Greene County Chamber of Commerce and event sponsor, Capitol Sheds, that will see a 20- to 25-minute professional fireworks display light up the night time sky over Stanardsville.  The show is free to all comers and will begin after sunset. The annual Fourth of July parade will begin at its normal time, 10:00 AM, with the community festival to follow. The festival will run until 2:00 PM.

The SIDC is looking forward to once again producing a great community event featuring tons of free family fun.  Come for the parade and stay for the great music, people’s choice car show, community water balloon battle of Stanardsville, bounce attractions, dunk tank and games, great food by local charities and much, much more.

To help fund this year’s events, the SIDC is holding a raffle-the grand prize of which is a brand new 2016 Toyota Camry sponsored by Brown Toyota of Charlottesville. Tickets are available for a donation of $100 and only 350 tickets will be sold. To obtain a ticket, please visit United Bank in Stanardsville or you may contact the SIDC directly at the email below. You do not need to be present to win. Winners will be drawn on the Court House steps on July 4th following the ringing of the bells.

The SIDC wishes, also, to express their needs for monetary donations and volunteers to the public.  No donation is too small or too large and every donation is critically important as they work to put on this event.  All donations are tax deductible.  Please contact committee chair, Michael Payne, at (540) 290-8344 or by email at thestanardsvilleparade@gmail.com for more information.
