York Traditions Bank is happy to sponsor July4York, York’s FREE Fourth of July community celebration and fireworks display at the York Revolution Stadium! In 2013 and 2014 10,000 patriots and partygoers packed the Downtown ballpark, taking up all seats and the field to enjoy the festivities and fireworks finale.
It all starts at 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 4.
“We are excited to once again be working with Eventive on this annual celebration of our independence,” said Gene Draganosky, President & CEO of York Traditions Bank. “It’s all about our country, and that includes our town and the amazing people in it. Each year, we look forward this fun opportunity to come together in appreciation of our community. We are honored to be a part of this York tradition.”
This year’s event will literally take the party to new heights as July4York presented by York Traditions Bank welcomes The Cave bouldering gym of New Cumberland, PA. Cave staff members recently visited the home of the York Revolution to map out a climbing route up the Arch Nemesis, the tallest outfield wall in all of baseball.
The party will again begin on the Brooks Robinson Plaza outside the ballpark, where families will find plenty of free fun for the kids. The plaza will also be home to the Independence Walk, a display of vintage American flags sponsored by local companies and individuals to raise funds for York’s Gold Star Memorial Healing and Peace Garden.
As partygoers enjoy the plaza or make their ascents up the left field wall, the eight-piece Big Boy Brass Band will stroll through the crowds and provide the party’s festive soundtrack.
And no July 4 party would be complete without favorite summertime foods and beverages, which organizers promise will be plentiful throughout the event.
The celebration will culminate with the area’s biggest July 4 fireworks display, which will launch at 9:30 p.m. thanks to the sponsorship of Glatfelter Insurance Group.
