Wentzville’s Fourth of July Festivities Include Parade, Free Swimming, Fireworks

Fireworks Show

Don’t miss Liberty Fest – Wentzville’s annual 4th of July parade and celebration! This year’s parade theme is “All-Star Salute to the USA!” Floats will be judged for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

You won’t want to miss anything – and, with the exception of reasonably priced concessions – it’s all free! The fun kicks off with the parade at 10 a.m. The parade begins at the corner of Campus Drive and Pearce Boulevard and will travel east down Pearce Boulevard, ending at the corner of Pearce and Luetkenhaus Boulevard. Set up your chair along the route and join in the fun!

Former mayor and veteran Paul Lambi will serve as this year’s Grand Marshall. Lambi was mayor from 2004-2012. During his time as mayor, the City’s population grew from approximately 7,000 to more than 30,000. Among other successful projects, Lambi was instrumental in developing the Village Center in downtown Wentzville. The Village Center project helped to revitalize the historical city center, which stabilized property values, increased private investment and created a place of identity helping to maintain Wentzville’s small town feeling.

After the parade, join us for the annual Liberty Fest celebration at Progress Park! The event is FREE, with the exception of reasonably priced concessions. (Please no outside coolers). Activities will include:

  • Free swimming from noon to 5 p.m. at Progress Pool ONLY
  • Inflatables and face painting from 5 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.,
  • Live music from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. featuring Queens Blvd. and Dr. Zhivegas
  • A spectacular fireworks show at 9:05 p.m.

Please note: Progress Park Recreation Center will be closed during Liberty Fest. Splash Station Aquatic Center will be open normal hours (Noon – 6:30 p.m.) on July 4.
