The Apache Junction Parks & Recreation Department has a lot of great things planned for July 4th. It starts at the Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center with a Co-ed volleyball tournament at 8 am, then public swimming from 10 am to 2 pm ($2.50 per adult and $1.50 per child). They’ll have various activities. The tournament sign-ups begin at 7:15 am and it’s limited to the first eight teams (swimming is free for players, but spectators will have to pay to swim). It then moves to the Apache Junction High School Football Stadium from 6 pm to the fireworks show at 8:30 pm. There is a Kids Zone, Game Booths, live entertainment, & a Bicycle, Wagon & Tricycle Decorating Contest (judging at 6:30 pm). Free watermelon will be available thanks to Apache Junction Little League from 6 pm until it is gone. This is a free event, open to the public (a small fee for food and game booths may apply). The fireworks show is presented by Republic Services.
