Rosedale’s July 4th celebration for 2024

Thursday, July 4th, 10:00am to noon, at Ramsey Park

Join us for a promenade around Ramsey Park, live music, watermelon slices, bake sale, water balloon tossing contest, ice cream truck, and carnival games for the kiddos!

Our 4th of July celebration is fast approaching. We hope you can join us as neighbors come together at Ramsey Park and have a great time!

  • Arrive by 10:00am to decorate bikes/scooters/strollers/pets with decorations we provide or decorate at home if you prefer.
  • A bit after 10:00, join our traditional promenade around Ramsey Park.
  • After the promenade, enjoy watermelon slices, live music, the bake sale, a water balloon tossing contest, an ice cream food truck, and (if we have enough volunteers) carnival games for the kiddos (see below to vollunteer!).
  • After the celebration ends at noon, you might choose to enjoy recreational swim at Ramsey Pool, which will be open noon to 7pm on the 4th of July!

All proceeds from the bake sale and carnival are used for park improvements.

Note: Ramsey Pool is scheduled to be open for recreational swim on July 4th from noon to 7pm.

URGENT: Volunteers needed!

Please help bring our sweet neighborhood tradition back in full this year! Among the volunteer tasks: donating drinks and baked goods, loaning camping chairs and tables, setting up before, and cleaning up after. We have many carnival shifts available (perfect for middle and high schoolers). The carnival can only happen if we have plenty of volunteers, so please consider volunteering for a shift.

July 4th Bake Sale – WE NEED YOU!

The bake sale is a popular spot at the celebration each year. It always raises a good amount of money and, like the carnival, all proceeds go into the fund for Ramsey Park improvements.
Come by for a snack and fabulous cookies to take home with you! We’ll have tacos (first come, first served) and would welcome additional business donations (contact Felicia at the number or email below!).
The most popular items are lovingly home-baked goodies by our very own Rosedale neighbors. We normally sell out! Please consider donating goodies that kids find irresistible, as well as items for a more grown-up palate. Ideas of what to bring:

  • individual baggies or plates of cookies or brownies
  • decorated cookies, cupcakes, and cake balls
  • individually packaged slices of bread, e.g. banana, pumpkin, etc.
  • whole loaves of cakes and breads, (e.g. pound cake, pumpkin bread)
  • small whole cobblers in takeaway pans
  • pies in takeaway pans
  • gluten-free items are also popular
  • any kind of baked goods that neighbors might enjoy

No large and elaborate cakes please (these don’t sell well). 
Please bring items to the bake sale tables by 9:30 – 10:00 am.
