Plan a fun filled 4th of July in Woodland this year by attending one of the many events scheduled on Independence Day.

Pancake Breakfast: The Woodland Professional Firefighters Association annual 4th of July Pancake Breakfast will be held at Fire Station #3 (1550 Springlake Court) from 8 until 11 am. Cost is $5 per person, children five and under are free. Visit www.WPFA4029.org for more information. All proceeds benefit the NorCal Trykers.

Bike Parade and Family Fun Fest: The City of Woodland is proud to host the annual 4th of July Bike Parade & Celebration for kids and adults.  Decorating begins at 9 am at Heritage Plaza (or you may come with your bikes already decorated). Registration for the best decorated bike or scooter is from 9-9:45 am. Prizes for the best decorated bike or scooter will be awarded after the parade down Main Street. This year, the Main Street Parade of Bikes has a new route! The route will begin at 10 am from Heritage Plaza and will ride to the Library where there will be live music performed by New Harmony Jazz.

Ice-Cream Social: The Woodland Senior Center Computer Club will be hosting its annual ice-cream social from 1-3 pm at the Woodland Community & Senior Center. Come cool off, enjoy refreshments, and be entertained by dancers and music. Cost is $2.00. Raffles tickets will also be sold.

Swim Fest: A free swim fest will be held from 1-3:45 pm at the Charles Brooks Community Swim Center. Come try out the exciting inflatable obstacle course. Bring your towels and sunscreen.

A bounce house, obstacle course, Rec2Go (mobile recreation van), games, music, and food will be available. Following a traditional Color and Riffle Guard ceremony conducted by the American Legion, and a singing of the National Anthem, a spectacular fireworks show is scheduled to begin around 9:15 pm.
