From page A4 | June 29, 2014 |

The Woodland Fourth of July celebration kicks off well before the fireworks.

Individuals may start the day with a fun run/walk, head over to Fire Station No. 3 for pancakes, ride in the bike parade, have some ice-cream, spend some time at the pool, and — finally — enjoy the fireworks celebration at Woodland High School.

The July Fourth 5-3-1 Run features timed runs: 1-mile walk/run and a USATF-certified 5-kilometer (3.1 mile) walk/run and 5-mile run. Visit www.woodlandschoolsfoundation.org to register or for more information.
The Woodland Professional Firefighters Association will cook up breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Station No. 3, 1550 Springlake Court. Cost is $5 per person, children 5 and under are free. Donations are being raised for the Woodland Music Boosters.
The Bike Parade decorating and registration begins at 9 a.m. at Heritage Plaza — bikes may come pre-decorated. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. and prizes for the best decorated bikes will be awarded at Freeman Park. There will be live music by Yolo Mambo.

The Woodland Senior Center Computer Club will be hosting its annual ice-cream social from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Woodland Community & Senior Center. Cost is $2. Raffles tickets will also be sold.
A free swim fest will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Charles Brooks Community Swim Center. Bring towels and sunscreen.
The pre-fireworks festivities will begin at 6 p.m. at Woodland High School. Bounce houses, an obstacle course, 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, a fireworks show is scheduled to begin around 9 p.m. No personal fireworks, alcohol, glass, or pets.

Fireworks are made possible by donations from businesses and individuals. PG&E is once again the Grand Finale Sponsor. The Woodland Elks Lodge, Waste Management, Adams Grain, Conaway Preservation Group, Nugget Markets and Food-4-Less are Shooting Star Sponsors. RDM Audio Visual Rentals, Main Street Music Studios, Denny Design, the WAVE, Woodland Chamber of Commerce, Woodland Healthcare, Clark Pacific and Best, Best & Krieger are Roman Candle Sponsors. Sparkler sponsors include West Yost Associates, Valley Tire Center, Pioneer Investors, Turn of the Century, Teichert, Dr. Glen Warganich-Stiles & Dr. Bill Marble, the Wiseman Company, Davies Enterprises, Lawson Property Management, Tom & Meg Stallard, BlackPine Holdings and Woodland Recreation Foundation.
