The tradition continues as the Golden Lions Club hosts a community celebration in Lions Park on July 4th. The fun begins at noon with free rides for kids, face painting, live music, and a large fireworks display in the evening (weather permitting of course!). The celebration is a day for families, friends and neighbors to get together at the beautiful park on 10th Street to picnic or purchase food and drink and enjoy the festivities.
Raffle prizes will be given out all day long. For a dollar each or six tickets for five dollars, you get a chance to win one of about 200 prizes while helping support the work of Golden Lions Club. Printed on the tickets are coupons for discounts and prizes at participating merchants. To buy raffle tickets, watch for Lions Club members outside King Soopers, Meyer Hardware, Windy Saddle Café, as well as other local business and at the Golden Farmer’s Market. Proceeds from ticket sales go back into community betterment projects such as scholarships for Golden High School graduates and building the public restroom on 12 Street.
