The Hayward Civic Club is continuing its annual tradition of hosting a Fourth of July community picnic and fireworks display! Beginning at 5:00pm in the field behind the Primary and Intermediate Schools, there will be food and drink vendors (with a variety of offerings, including burgers, brats, hot dogs, wings, beer, smoothies, shaved ice, and more!), a DJ, and the Hayward Hawks baseball game (starting at 7:00pm).
Additionally, this year will showcase a Little League game on the field prior to the Hawks game, as well as an Ice Cream Sandwich Eating Contest — sponsored by Kemps — at 8:00pm. There will also be a series of kids games starting at 7:00pm.
The fireworks show will begin after nightfall, roughly at 10:00pm. This is always one of the most fun evenings of our summer season, and we hope you’ll join us to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day!
We are also looking for volunteers to help with working the beer tent, parking and crowd control from the hours of 5:00pm to 9:00pm, additional hands for the ice cream eating contest, as well as volunteers for clean-up effort in the early morning hours of Friday, July 5th.
This Fourth of July picnic was born through the efforts of our membership and is only made possible through the efforts of our current membership taking part. If that is something you’d be willing to assist us with, contact Ben Kanters at the Pro Shop.
Donations or contributions to keep this great event alive would be greatly appreciated, as well!
