Woodland celebrates with races, pancakes, bike parade and fireworks

Area residents can plan a fun-filled July 4 in Woodland by enjoying the many festivities throughout the day. This year, the fireworks celebration will return to Woodland High School, 21 N. West St.

July Fourth Run: The day kicks off with the Woodland Schools Foundation’s July Fourth 5-3-1 Run beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the Pioneer High School track, 1400 Pioneer Ave. It will feature a 1-mile, a 5K (3.1 mile) and a 5-mile timed run, professionally timed by Synergy Timing.

Proceeds benefit the students of Woodland Joint Unified School District. Visit www.woodlandschoolsfoundation.org for more information.

Pancake breakfast: The Woodland Professional Firefighters Association’s annual Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast will be at Fire Station 3, 1550 Springlake Court, from 8 to 11 a.m. The cost is $5 per person or free for children 5 and under. Visit www.WPFA4029.org for more information.

Proceeds will be used for the Community Flag Project — installation of a 90-foot flag pole and 1,800-square-foot American flag in the community.

Bike parade and Freeman Park family festival: The city of Woodland Parks and Recreation Commission, Historic Woodland Downtown Business Association and the Woodland Bike Campaign will host the annual Fourth of July Bike Parade & Celebration. This family-friendly event is growing and the goal is to see 500 bikes roll down Main Street this year.

Businesses are invited to participate by decorating a bike and/or wagon. Wheelchairs are welcome. Decorating and registration begins at 9 a.m. at Heritage Plaza (or you may come with your bikes already decorated). Judging begins at 10 a.m. at the plaza. Prizes will be awarded for: Most Patriotic, Most Unusual, Cutest, Best Multi-Person/Team, Best Wagon/Trailer and Best Business/Employer.

The Main Street Parade of Bikes will begin at 11 a.m. and will ride to Freeman Park where there will be music performed by Crawford & Perkes, fresh fruit provided by La Superior Mercado, food vendors, bounce houses, face painting and more.

Ken’s Bikes will be on hand to pump up bike tires and do free safety inspections. Valet bike parking will be available. To volunteer to help or for more information, contact Maria Contreras of the Woodland Bike Campaign at 530-753-1125 or funmaria@sbcglobal.net.

Ice cream social: The Woodland Senior Center Computer Club will host its annual ice cream social from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East St. Come cool off, enjoy refreshments, and be entertained by dancers and music. The cost is $2. Raffle tickets will be sold.

Swim fest: A free swim fest is from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Charles Brooks Community Swim Center. Participants should bring towels and sunscreen.

Fireworks: The pre-fireworks festivities will begin at 6 p.m. at Woodland High School. Bounce houses, obstacle courses, games, music and food will be available. Following a traditional honor guard ceremony conducted by the American Legion and the singing of the national anthem, an aerial fireworks show is scheduled to begin about 9 p.m. No personal fireworks, alcohol, glass or pets will be allowed.
