The Theme for 2022 is "Grateful to Celebrate Together Again"

The Spirit of the Fourth Community Fair is a fun and exciting family event in beautiful Webb Lake Park. Our Honorary Mayor, Tracy Garza, will officially open the fair at 9:00 a.m. followed by our National Anthem sung by John Vincent. Come early and enjoy a hot cup of coffee and pastries and return to the stage area for the Annual Larry Himmel Patriotic Pet Contest. Bring your favorite pet dressed in their best patriotic attire. The Community Fair offers an array of food vendors, food trucks, drinks, handicrafts and other items. Children and adults will enjoy the TJ Magic Show following the Veteran's Memorial Ceremony and a performance by Gyminny Kids. Enjoy snow cones and other tasty treats while wandering through the Wheels of Freedom auto show with over 120 classic cars on display. Be sure to stop by the RBBA's Rubber Ducky booth to buy your rubber ducky for the Annual Bob Wells Rubber Ducky Race in Webb Lake. An assortment of delicious and tantalizing food including hot dogs and BBQ will be available from our food vendors and food trucks, so be sure to have a great lunch before getting in place for the Spirit of the Fourth Parade.
