Trying to find something to do this Saturday for the Fourth?

Liberty Run 5k

For those looking to keep active this holiday week, Denton will have a 5K race and one mile walk starting at North Lakes Rec center. Runners are to check in at 6:30 a.m. and the race will begin at 7:30 a.m.  Registration at the door will cost $20. The fee will include a t-shirt.

Fourth of July Yankee Doodle Parade

The annual Fourth of July Parade around the Square will begin at 9 a.m. This will be a great place to bring your families and animals to enjoy a patriotic parade that is sure to leave you feeling proud of your country. The parade will start on E. McKinney Street and end at West Walnut Street circling around the Square to get there.

Free Jubilee

If there are little ones in the picture, this is the perfect place to bring them. There will be a horseshoe tournament, live entertainment, an arts and crafts show and a kid’s carnival. The event will start at 9 a.m. with the horseshoe tournament and will end at 6 p.m. with a $1 dip in the pool, if you choose to do so. If you’re afraid about the kids being bored on the Fourth and are on a budget, take them here. There is something to do every hour.

The Forum pool party

There will be a pool party at the Forum apartments on Inman Street from 2 to 6 p.m. There will be a DJ playing music and multiple sand volleyball courts if swimming isn’t your thing. If you’re a college student looking for a good place to drink and swim, this pool party is for you.

Kiwanis firework show at Apogee stadium

The Kiwanis club will hosts its annual firework show at Apogee Stadium Saturday night starting at 6:30 p.m. There will be live music and amazing fireworks that will make you proud to be a part of the UNT community. The tradition has been carried out for about 40 years and will continue to be a great way to spend your Fourth of July. Get there a little early for good seats.
