[ARCHIVED] Loveland Celebrates Independence Day

Dog with owners at park

The City of Loveland hosted its annual Independence Day Celebration on Tuesday, July 4. The event featured a kid zone, concert, parade, and fireworks. 

Several new activities were added this year including:

  • Water splash zone
  • Pie eating contest
  • Yankee Doodle dog parade
  • Bingo

The kid zone hosted fun for all ages. Visitors enjoyed a meet-and-greet with FC Cincinnati member Ian Murphy, games, a reptile petting zoo, princesses & superheroes, glitter tattoos, the Loveland High School Robotics Team, martial arts & dance/gymnastics demos, photo opportunities, the Loveland Frog, and more. Live entertainment included drum performances by Loveland Rocks Music Lessons and a sway pole performer. A sway pole is a new extreme cirque act with aerial pole acrobatics.

SAW Pilates acted as the Grand Marshal for this year’s parade, which had more than 50 entries. A variety of groups participated —local scout troops, music acts, the Syrian Shriners’ mini Corvettes, and community businesses — to name just a few. 

Pandora Effect performed at the Nisbet Park Amphitheater. This six-piece rock cover band kept the crowd dancing and moving all evening long to hits from Joan Jett to Journey.

The city would like to thank all who attended the event, as well as the 2023 event sponsors. Special thanks to the firework sponsors including BF Realty, Oasis Turf & Tree, and Premier Tumbling & Dance.

2023 July 4th Thank You
