Unpleasant Run at Shaker Village

4th of July

The festivities are looking a little different this year but Lexington is still here to celebrate. Fireworks will be launched from R.J. Corman. People who can’t see the fireworks from where they are staying are encouraged to drive to an appropriate parking spot and celebrate from their cars. 

Due to COVID-19, the city canceled the Fourth of July Parade and Festival, and the Patriotic Concert but Lexington Parks & Recreation has several new ideas:  

Bluegrass 10K Virtual Race:  The Bluegrass 10,000 is on virtually. Register by July 1 online for $35 at lexingtonky.gov. Run between July 1 and July 7, then enter your time online. Almost 900 racers have already signed up. Shirts designed by Cricket Press are available for curbside pick-up.
Door or Mailbox Decorating Contest: Organize a door or mailbox decorating party in your neighborhood. On the Fourth of July, walk together as a family and check out all the creations! There will be a contest with the Mayor picking the winner. 
Week of Festive Crafts: Parks will plan different crafts for every day of Fourth of July week. Ideas will be posted on the Parks’ Artworks at the Carver Center page.
