Celebrate July 4th with Forever Resorts

With Memorial Day behind us and June ahead, that means that the Fourth of July is just around the corner! Celebrating the weekend with a Forever Resorts style vacation is a must for this upcoming Independence Day weekend and we wanted to share some of our favorite things to do when you head out to the lake, lodge, or outdoor adventure.

Start Early at Southfork Ranch

Many people know Southfork Ranch as the home of the Ewing Family from the famous show, Dallas, but Southfork Ranch is also an events center. From weddings to corporate events to concerts, they do it all. For the past few years, Southfork as played host to the Celebrate Freedom Concert and we’re thrilled to have it back again. With acts like Britt Nicole, Danny Gokey, Crowder, and more, this is sure to be a fun filled event to celebrate Independence Day. The event will be coming a week before July 4th, on Saturday, June 26th leaving you with time to continue the Fourth of July festivities the following weekend.

Independence Day Parade at Mormon Lake

Each year, the Mormon Lake Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary throws an Independence Day parade for all to enjoy. Surrounded by the Ponderosa Pines in Northern Arizona, the parade will be a great way to escape the summer heat and also explore the hiking trails in the area. This Fourth of July celebration will be held on Saturday, July 1st, leaving you the rest of the holiday weekend to relax, unwind, and enjoy your vacation. Be sure to head over to the Mormon Lake Lodge website to find your perfect cabin for your holiday weekend.

Day Long Celebration in Kanab

The town of Kanab, where our famous Parry Lodge, Iron Horse Restaurant, and Forever Adventure Tours are located, goes all out for the Fourth of July with a day-long celebration. Kicking off the morning with a Cannon Blast at 6 am, there will be a Color Run/Walk followed by a Parade in the center of town, park fair, live entertainment, and a final firework show at the end of the night. The event is a big one for the town of Kanab and all are welcome to join so be sure to plan your stay at Parry Lodge before all the rooms are taken.

If you’re looking for a quieter escape for the Fourth of July, you can also head out to any of our National Park properties for the holiday weekend such as the Grand Canyon North Rim, Bryce Canyon, or even Big Bend National Park. Celebrate America’s freedom with amazing views and fun celebrations around the country.
