A Virtual Fourth of July Celebration
Jul 4 all-day

You don’t need to leave your back yard to be part of Golden’s traditional Independence Day celebration! Since we can’t come together for the big festival or host a live fireworks show, the Golden Lions Club is bringing it to you – virtually – for a July 4th community party with digital ways to participate.

The Golden Lions are partnering with local eateries and breweries in the community for a day of fine food. Order the “Lions Special” (locations will be updated on the Golden Lions Facebook page) and receive your own 4th of July swag bag! If you’re out and about downtown, keep an eye out for volunteers wearing the signature yellow Lions vest — the club will be passing out goodies on Saturday, July 4th as well. Watch Facebook LIVE as they have events coming to you from various parts of town, comedian clips, and live music segments. Sponsored contests will include ‘Most Patriotic Pet’, ‘Best Home Face Painting’, and more.

You’ll even get a fireworks show! At 8 p.m., the Golden Lions will broadcast, in conjunction with the City of Golden, a previous Golden fireworks show on social media, Channel 8, and GCO.TV (now available on Roku, and Apple TV)!
