Carmel Road to Hereford High School. Those sections of Mt. Carmel Road and York Road will be closed from 5:30 pm until the parade is over, which could be as late as 7:00 pm. A fireworks show will occur at dusk. Please contact us with any questions. Thank you for your continued support.

Property Decorating Contest
We love to see the community band together during this 5th of July season and show off our patriotic spirit. Please decorate your property (resident or business) in the theme of American Independence. We will be judging the best residential property and best business property on June 21st and 22nd. A sign will be placed in the yard. Judging areas are from the Exxon Station on Mount Carmel east to York Road. Then York Road from Everett Road to Casa Mias Restaurant.
Vendor spots are available at the Hereford Independence Festival location.
The fireworks start at dusk. Come early and choose your favorite spot. Set up your chairs or blankets, and other fun stuff, as you prepare to watch the spectacular fireworks display.
