As July 4 gets closer, you might be wondering about Independence Day activities in Bakersfield. Here are a few local events to get you started.
- Bakersfield Winds Patriotic Concert. Music always stirs the soul and what better way to feel patriotic than by listening to some of the greatest patriotic music played by some incredible musicians. This annual event will be held on June 30 at 7:30 pm at Olive Drive Church in Bakersfield. Musical selections include music from the movie Lincoln, “Stars and Stripes Forever,” selections from Oklahoma, and more. Suggested admission is $5, but veterans are admitted for free.
- The Fourth at River Walk Celebration. Independence Day isn’t complete until you’ve seen some fireworks. Stop by the River Walk Park here in Bakersfield and listen to performances by Right Cross and Foster Campbell before the spectacular fireworks display. Bring your own picnic, blankets, and chairs and enjoy a night out on the lawn. Call 661-852-7300 for more information.
- 4th of July Hotdog Festival. What’s more American than hotdogs? Not much. Head to nearby Tehachapi on July 4 and spend the day celebrating America. There will be fun activities throughout the day including the Wiener Dog races, music, fireworks, and of course hot dogs (and other food).
Here at Bakersfield Mazda, we wish everyone a happy Independence Day and hope everyone stays safe and gets to spend some time with family and friends.
