City forming parade, fireworks plans for July 4
In 2009 the community raised more than $25,000 to keep the annual 4th of July fireworks tradition alive. The committee is again raising funds to help sponsor the entire celebration, including entertainment and the annual tradition of fireworks.
The day’s festivities will begin at 2 p.m. with the 48th Annual Parade. As in years past, the parade will start at the Butler County Fairgrounds, proceed to Route 4 and then to High Street. It will conclude just past the Butler County Court House on Front Street. There will be a patriotic ceremony with music, color and pageantry immediately following the parade at the historic County Court House. The parade is sponsored by the Michael J. Colligan Fund of the Hamilton Community Foundation and the 4th of July Committee.
If any individual or business is interested in being a sponsor for the 2010 celebration contact the Hamilton Community Foundation at (513) 863-1717 or Hamilton Parks and Recreation at (513) 785-7060.
