Celebrate the birth of our great nation with a distinctly Americana flair by spending your Fourth of July in Redmond! Our annual Fourth of July parade, presented by St. Charles Health Care and brought to you by the Redmond Chamber of Commerce, will put you in the patriotic spirit. After our red, white and blue procession in downtown Redmond, treat your family to an old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration at the Deschutes Fair & Expo Center! Then come back to the Deschutes Fair & Expo Center just before sunset to enjoy Redmond's annual fireworks display, brought to you thanks to the generosity of High Desert Aggregate and Paving, Inc. The colorful light show will begin at dusk, or around 10 p.m. Bring your ooh's and ahh's!
