Mild temps forecast for Fourth festivities

Posted on July 2, 2017 by Sonoma Valley Sun


Unlike previous years when the Sonoma’s Fourth of July celebration has been as hot as a firecracker, a mild 81-degree is forecast for Tuesday’s festivities.


The parade around the Plaza begins at 10 a.m., with festival — food, music, cold beer, wine, games, vendor booths and more — from noon to 5 p.m.

The theme of the parade is “Honoring Our Local Heroes.”


The fireworks show, the annual all-volunteer effort by the Sonoma Valley Volunteer Firefighters Association, begins at dusk, fired from the parking lot of the Vallejo House along West Spain Street.

After a half century of producing parade and festival, the Sonoma Community Center has “proudly passed the torch” to the SVFA for Sonoma’s traditional Independence Day celebration.
