Williston puts on an outstanding Independence Day celebration each year on July 3 with a show-stopping parade, a festival and a spectacular fireworks display to top off the evening. The parade usually includes over 100 different entries ranging from floats to fire trucks to politicians. After the parade downtown the crowd heads over to the Williston Horseman’s Park for the July 3 festivities put on by the city and the Chamber of Commerce. There are plenty of free activities for children as well as food and entertainment. At nightfall the sky lights up with the much-anticipated fireworks extravaganza.
