Independence Day

All 2016 City of Montrose annual community events honor the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service. Event themes honor the Centennial by focusing on land stewardship and the fundamental idea of protecting, conserving, and preserving our land, landscapes, and heritage.

Independence Day: “America the Beautiful”

Commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, Independence Day is the National Day of the United States. Montrose celebrates with a morning parade and evening fireworks.
