To my knowledge, there are no fireworks in Sedona. Usually Flagstaff (30-45 minutes north) plans them, and it seems more than 50% of the time, they are canceled due to fire danger. Surrounding communities may have better options for that.

Flagstaff has a 4th of July parade that oozes small-town charm. It tends to run over an hour as it seems every group in town wants to be a part of it. Prescott probably has something also. But as far as I know, no parades in Sedona, either.

Always a parade but never any fireworks. Wildfire season has usually begun by then and fire danger gets high. Sometimes, depending on drought conditions, there are fireworks in Cottonwood, Williams or Flagstaff, and sometimes they have celebrations at the Cliff Castle casino in Camp Verde.

The best fireworks in AZ are down in Tempe where they have an all day long festival and big display at night. If you go, book a room and don't plan to battle traffic to get back up to Sedona that night.

In Sedona, it's a patriotic small town holiday. There are picnics and events around town for visitors and locals.

Sorry I didn't know that, RedRox. What is the parade route in Sedona? Just curious.

no firewords in Sedona. Cottonwood, 20 minutes away has them nearly every years. I don't ever recall a 4th of July parade in Sedona and have been here 13 years. The only parade I recall in Sedona is St. Patricks Day.

Cliff you are so right. I got my holidays mixed up. And as you can tell, I avoid Uptown on those days anyway.
