Town Facilities Closed July 4, Festivities at Municipal Park


All Town of Clayton facilities will be closed Wednesday, July 4 for Independence Day – except for Municipal Park, where our 38th annual July 4th Celebration and Fireworks begins at 4 p.m.!

All Star Waste Services will NOT run garbage, recycling or yard waste routes on July 4 – but you should put your carts to the curb as usual all week. Just know it may take an extra day for the trucks to catch up from the holiday. When in doubt, leave it out!

The July 4 facility closures include Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library, the Clayton Community Center, The Clayton Center and Town Hall — including our Utilities & Billing department. If you have an emergency, call 911.

Looking to celebrate our nation's independence with the community? Come to the Town of Clayton's 38th annual July 4th Celebration and Fireworks at Municipal Park, 325 McCullers Drive.

The fun starts Wednesday, July 4 at 4 p.m. with free family events on the field, basketball competitions, watermelon and ice cream giveaways, a hose down by the Clayton Fire Department and a free concert with Big Love! Big Love is a six-piece dance band based out of Raleigh. They play a variety of great music that gets people moving, from the classics to current hits and including jazz, disco, pop, funk, R&B, and beach.

Also look out for food vendors, a cornhole tournament, inflatables and fair rides, bingo and raffles throughout the night. The fireworks shoot off at dark, and the inflatables and rides will run another half hour after the show. That way, you can have more fun instead of sitting in traffic!

If you want to see all the fireworks – the best show in the area! – and have all the fun, you've got to be at Municipal Park on July 4!! Click here for full details about the festivities, including event and parking maps.

Watch this video and you'll see we had the greatest time last year, so let's do it again on Wednesday, July 4th, 2018!
