Experience clean air and cool summer breezes during outdoor activities highlighting the quality of life in Springerville’s beautiful mountainous area. Offering a wide range of activities, including skiing, ice fishing, hunting, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, and mountain biking—just to name a few—Springerville takes you away from big-city distractions. Kids love the activities available to them—camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and more—along with our spectacular 4th of July celebration with Round Valley 104th Annual Rodeo, fireworks, and bands!
The 4th of July parade will be held in the late morning. All residents and neighboring communities are open to participate, and the result will be a colorful display of floats, bands, and horseback riders showcasing the best of northeastern Arizona. The sanctioned rodeo lasts for two days, and is sponsored by the Apache County Sheriff’s Posse. The fireworks are the best on the mountain and guaranteed to bring smiles to young and old.
In addition to the annual 4th of July parade and rodeo, this year Springerville is pleased to offer a very special addition to the spectacular fireworks event at the Springerville Airport: two bands, dancing, food, and LOTS of fun for one and all! Sponsored by Green Medicine and the town of Springerville, the bands will start at 6 PM and play until the fireworks start, around 9 PM. The event is free to all! … but make sure to come early!
Mark your calendars for Monday, July 4th, and join the town of Springerville and Green Medicine in welcoming Diamond in the Rough and KansAZ (tribute bands out of Phoenix) to the stage at the Springerville Airport.
