Prescott: Open for Fun on July 4th

04 July 2017  

Still lots to do in Prescott on July 4th

For safety reasons, the City of Prescott has cancelled the downtown fireworks planned for tomorrow night. But that doesn’t mean that downtown Prescott is rolling up it’s sidewalks and pretending that July 4th is just another day. No, siree, Bob. An entertainment extravaganza awaits the entire family.

Matt Brassard, owner of Matt’s Saloon, explained that this week and especially this day are important to the hometown businesses. "It’s like the summer’s Black Friday,” Brassard said. Many of the local business owners count on this week, so they are especially appreciative of the community support.

At Prescott Mile High Middle School, you’ll find live bands, lots of food vendors, inflatables, water slides and, oh yeah, the Beer Garden. General admission is $5, and unlimited bounce house passes are just $10. 

Perhaps bouncey houses are just not your thing? Well, meander round the corner and take a walk down Whiskey Row. There are plenty of adult beverage establishments to check out, the Palace Restaurant and Saloon  has yummy steaks, sandwiches and salads and Hotel St. Michael’s has some pretty good grub, too. 

Matt’s Saloon has two bands on the schedule for tomorrow: Breaking Hank will play from 12-5 PM, and Western Fusion takes the stage from 6-11 PM.

Also, don’t forget the World’s Oldest Rodeo™ is putting on it’s last performance of the year. Tuesday’s Rodeo starts at 1:30, and is full of pageantry, excitement, dedicated cowboys, lovely cowgirls and ornery critters. You sure don’t want to miss the fun!
