ARLINGTON – Signups are still being taken for the Fourth of July Grande Parade in Arlington.

Register at stillyvalleychamber.com.

You can also get a limited edition 4th of July t-shirt for only $10 by going to the same site. Sales support the parade.

And sponsorships are still being sought for the event – four levels from $100 to $2,500. Call 360-659-5453 or email nathan@stillyvalleychamber.com. The parade itself is at 5 p.m. downtown on Olympic Avenue, and it’s followed by the fireworks at dusk at the Boys and Girls Club near the airport.

But there is so much more going on before that.

The 4th celebration in Arlington actually starts the day before with the Stilly Beer & Wine Garden July 3 from 2-10 p.m. at Haller Park. It continues on the actual holiday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Events start early on the 4th with a pancake breakfast from 7-11 a.m. at Haller. The Pedal, Paddle, Puff Triathlon follows at 9 a.m. Usually it’s a three-person relay of a bicyclist, canoeist and runner.

The Foam 5K Fun Run starts at 10 a.m. Adding to the fun of a regular fun run is that participants run through foam at the finish line.

The silent and live Kiwanis Auction takes place at 9 and 10:30 a.m.

Events then move downtown with Old Fashioned Fourth games and activities at Legion Park from noon to 4:30 p.m.

Going from 2 to 6 p.m. is a hot dog barbecue at the Mason’s.

Preceding the Grande Parade is the Kiddies Parade, starting at 4:30, also on Olympic Ave.

After the Grande Parade the party moves back to Haller Park before the fireworks for the Rotary Duck Dash at 7:30 p.m.
