Delta City sponsors one of the most superb Independence Day celebrations to be found state-wide, each year drawing people from near and far. The number of people in and around Delta sometimes actually surpasses our actual population as visitors and family members return home for a time to enjoy their day!

There is no time to sleep in on July 4th in Delta, but even if you do, ready or not, the members of the local chapter of The American Legion rouse us all with the annual firing of cannons at the crisp morning hour of 6:00 a.m. If you aren't already up and downtown to watch the cannons being fired, you will want to head to the Delta City Park for a pancake and egg breakfast served by the local Boy Scouts of America program.

Our next major event is our annual Main Street Parade that begins at 350 East Street and proceeds west to 400 West Street. For many years now we have been awed and spectacularly entertained by a flyover made by United States Air Force fighter jets and in more recent years, members of our local flying club, and generally once they have flown overhead, we begin the parade. Our parade easily evokes many emotions, including pride and reverence as our American Legion marches with United States flag waving in the summer breeze along with the flags of each of the divisions that comprise the Armed Forces of the United States of America. Following are a wide variety of antique and modern day tractors, fire engines and other public safety equipment from our own fire department and that of neighboring agencies. Thereafter it is much fun to view the results of creative minds and their rendition of a float designed around whatever theme the Delta City Council selected for the year.

After the parade has concluded, people then begin to congregate in the Delta City Park around the Grandstand in anticipation of the short patriotic program that is always held, which is followed up by several hours worth of local talent and entertainment. While that is ongoing, you will find numerous vendors selling food, treats, crafts, toys and many other kinds of wares. And for children, they need not worry, we always have a variety of fun and games for kids of all ages, which includes things like an inflatable slide, rock wall or an obstacle course, small games, and local groups holding fund-raising activities.

As events wind down in the City Park, it then becomes time to prepare for the annual Demolition Derby at the Millard County Fairgrounds, and Delta City concludes the festivities with a fireworks show to be proud of.
