4th of July in Georgetown


July 4th in Georgetown will look a little different this year, but we still want to make it fun for our Georgetown residents & neighbors in Silver Plume.  We are limited in what we can do safely due to the Covid-19 restrictions, but we think we’ve come up with some fun, safe activities for all.  We hope that you’ll join us in our celebration.  Take advantage of this local, intimate event to catch up with your neighbors, from a safe distance of course.

 

Home, Bridge & Business Decorating Contest – Pick a patriotic theme and decorate your home or nearby bridge prior to July 4th.  People will be driving past your home/bridge to see your handiwork on July 4th. To register for the contest, send your address or the location of the bridge you’re decorating to:  Carolyn Hohne, Special Events Coordinator at carolynhohne@gmail.com.  Deadline to register for the contest is July 2nd.

 

Decorated Home, Bridge and Businesses Self-Driving Tour – On July 4th, pick up a map at any participating Georgetown business that will show you all of the homes, bridges and businesses participating in the Home, Bridge & Business Decorating Contest.  Follow the route indicated in your car to see all of the wonderfully decorated homes, bridges and businesses in both Georgetown & Silver Plume.

 

Patriotic Graffiti Mural – Come to Strousse Park and add your artwork/inspiring words to our large mural.  Some markers will be provided and routinely sanitized, but feel free to bring your own.

 

8pm Howl – Open your doors.  Step outside.  Then give us your loudest howl in honor of our medical professionals and 1st responders who continue to put their lives on the line; not just during the pandemic, but every single day.

 Help us be able to continue to do fun activities for our residents by:

 - Utilizing physical distancing throughout town at all times. Always remain at least 6’ from those not in your household,

 - Wearing your most patriotic mask,

 Please Note - Susceptible populations are strongly recommended to refrain from participating in any public gathering during the Safer at Home phase.
