2022 4th of July – Live & In Person! – Need Volunteers

Our Fourth of July in Colonial Hills at Selby Park is back live and in person after a two-year hiatus! Here is the schedule of activities, with something available for all, and here’s the link where you can sign up to volunteer to help:

  • 8:30 AM Sharp! – Start of the 43rd Annual 5K “Run Through the Hills.” Please pre-register here now, before you forget!
    This online pre-registration will cut off at midnight July 2, but you will still be able to register race day in person starting at 7:30 AM, using a credit or debit card to pay.
    Please try to come over to the shelter house between 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM on Sunday, July 3 to pick up your race bib the evening before the race, to lessen the intense activity during the hour before the race starts on July 4. And although the traditional awards for overall F/M best time, and for first, second, and third-place by age and gender category will again be given after the race — remember that this race is about having fun, challenging yourself, and that you can walk as much of the course as you want! We hope to see you there, it’s going to be a great day for a 5K!

  • 10:00 AM – Kiddie Parade: Independence Day theme decorated bikes, trikes, wagons, kids, adults, pets, floats, scooters and anything else with wheels! The participants will circle the park, up to three times, while the judges and onlookers enjoy the “parade.”

  • 10:30 AM – Inflatable Water Slide – Mickey Mouse Bounce House – Dunk Tank – Midway Games – Face Painters – Live Music – Food Trucks (Ajumama – Korean Street Food and free for everyone on a hot day Kona Ice, sponsored by The CyMack Group). Remember to bring swimwear and towels for the slip and slide, but to keep dry, don’t stand too close to the dunk tank while one of four intrepid volunteers from CHES taunt your throwing accuracy!

  • 11:15 AM – Watermelon Eating Competition – One competition for youth under 18 and one for adults.

  • Noon – End of activities – Don’t be late!

$5.00 wristbands for anyone over age three will be sold, to allow for unlimited access to the water slide, bounce house, dunk tank, midway games and face painters, with all funds generated going for the CHCA scholarship awards and for support of all the other CHCA activities and services throughout the year. Note that children three and under are free for all activities, and also that Kona Ice and the watermelon eating contest are free to everyone!

And remember all these wonderful events will require wonderful volunteers, to sign up via our SignUpGenius, which would be a convenient way for upcoming high school seniors to meet their CHCA service requirements for eligibility for CHCA scholarship grants in the spring.

We can’t wait to see you there for our traditional Colonial Hills 4th of July!
