Thousands are expected to gather for community celebrations in Fairfield and Suisun City July 4 to celebrate America's 243rd year of independence.
Kick off your Independence Day bright and early with a pancake breakfast and parade in downtown Fairfield! The parade, celebrating “True to the Red, White & Blue," will begin at 10 am. Spectators are encouraged to line Texas Street, from Great Jones to Washington Streets, to enjoy the festivities. There will be floats, horse units, autos, youth groups, and community organizations participating. Rick Wood, a longtime downtown Fairfield volunteer, is the parade grand marshal. The Boy Scout Troop 482's annual pancake breakfast will be at the Fairfield Moose Lodge, 623 Taylor Street, from 8 am to 10:30 am. Breakfast is $8 per person and includes pancakes, eggs, sausage, juice, and coffee. Tickets may be purchased or donated to a First Responder at the door.
