Fourth of July Activities in Plain City.

There are a lot of things going on around the Village for the Fourth of July Celebration. Take advantage of some of these fun activities, all of which are occurring on Sunday, July 4th.

First of all, the Knights of Columbus are opening the parking lot of Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church‘s Parish Activity Center (the PAC) for people to view the fireworks. The PAC is located at 670 West Main Street behind the Firehouse. Admission to park in the lot for the fireworks display is $2 per carload. The lot opens at 3 pm to allow people to begin finding choice parking spots. Food will be served at 5 pm. The Knights will serve a hot dog, chips and a pop for $2.50 per person. There will also be a porta-john on site. The public is welcome to eat and stay to watch the fireworks–and this is an excellent place to see the fireworks with an unobstructed view.

The parade through town will begin at 3:30 pm. The Line up for the parade begins at 2:30. The Jonathan Alder Boys Baseball Team State Champs will be featured as the Grand Marshals of the parade. Come out and cheer for the boys.

Plain City Druggist will be in the parade, as well. Make sure you collect all of our goodies. We’ll be throwing candy, balls, beads, and more. The plastic baggies containing our candy will also feature coupons that can be used in the store. So be on the look out for those.

Following the parade, you can gather in Pastime Park for food, fun, games, music, and finally fireworks at 10 pm. The Little Miss and Mister Contest begins at 5:30. Misfit Toys will perform at 6:30. There will be inflatables for the kids from 4-8 pm, face painting, balloon twisting, and lots more.

One thing we would like to remind everyone about: Please do not bring your pets to the fireworks. More animals are lost during fireworks displays than at any other time of the year. Well meaning dog owners bring their dogs out and the loud noises of the fireworks often scare the dogs and they dart. Animal shelters report an increase in the number of lost dogs that are picked up following fireworks each July 4th. Many of these dogs are never reunited with their owners. So do yourself and your pet a favor and leave them safely at home where they cannot get loose if they become scared.

Additionally, while Monday, July 5th is a federal holiday with banks and the post office closing, Plain City Druggist will be open our normal hours of 9-6 (closed from 1:15-2:15 for lunch).

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July.
