The Parker Stars and Stripes Celebration Presented by Ent Credit Union will return for another year of fireworks and activities July 4 at Salisbury Park.

This year the celebration will open seating on three of the four baseball fields at Salisbury Park. Parking opens at 3 p.m. and admission begins at 5. There will be live music from local bands from 6 to 9:15. Fireworks will be set off in the north lot at 9:30 p.m. Parking is $10.

“These fields have never been opened before, so it's a lot more seating for the general public,” said event coordinator Brooke Spain.

Field One will be free general admission for 1,000 fans. Entrance will be allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Participants are allowed to bring blankets and lawn chairs. No dogs are allowed. Alcohol is prohibited. No tents or canopies are allowed.

Field Two will be closed. Field Three will be open for VIP use of 1,250 seats. For $40, participants will receive a VIP package of five wristbands, five tokens for Kona Ice drinks and an hour of exclusive access to inflatables and ziplines from 5 p.m. to 6.

Field Four will be the military appreciation field, allowing the first 500 with a military ID, active duty or veteran, passes for themselves and family and friends.

“It's something that's been a passion of mine to really bring it back to what this day is about — to celebrate those who maintain our freedom," Spain said.

Parker's Fourth of July celebration usually attracts more than 10,000 people from Parker and neighboring communities.

In addition to the expanded seating, the town is offering $5 zipline rides during the celebration. There will also be 15 food vendors to choose from. Once the parking lots fill up, Spain estimated that between 7:30 and 8:30, the town will close Motsenbocker Road to through traffic.

To purchase VIP tickets, visit town hall at 20120 E. Mainstreet between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday through July 3.
