Is it possible to do every single thing on the calendar for Davis' Fourth of July celebration?
The highly ambitious among us might be able to accomplish the whole slate of activities, but most of us will have to choose among them.
The day kicks off at 7 a.m. with pancakes at the Davis Little League Fields — Yes! At the fields! — followed by lots of youth baseball. Soon after, at 7:30 a.m., the Davis Bike Club's annual criterium gets rolling in downtown Davis, followed by a kiddie parade — a Kiwanis tradition dating back to the 1930s — and a kids' fun (bicycle) ride put on by DBC.
