Fourth of July festivities begin in Delta and Fillmore with early morning breakfasts, followed by Main Street parades that highlight a rural lifestyle. After the parades, patriotic programs are held in the park, complete with speeches, songs and talent shows.

Games, entertainment, free swimming and other activities fill the afternoon in both communities. Fireworks at the Fillmore Fairgrounds are scheduled for dusk. In Delta, the Demolition Derby starts at the County Fairgrounds at 6:00 p.m., with fireworks following. Please note that the Demolition Derby will now be reserved seating only. See 2016 Demolition Derby Rules. Here are theĀ bone stock rules and here's the Derby entry form.

Visitors enjoy the old-fashioned fun in both communities, and many guests return year after year to recapture the feeling of belonging that is missing in urban areas.
