4th of July Celebration

Join us as we celebrate our Nation's independence!

Each year the Town of Gila Bend puts on an explosive celebration for the Fourth of July, and this year will be no different!

This year, our Fourth of July Fireworks will be at Fuentes Stadium (GB High School Football Field) and will open to the public at 5:30PM.

Kick off July 4th with a run through our Mud Bog at Burleson Park, then head next door to the community pool for a shower and swim! Enjoy contests and games throughout the day and grab a hotdog or 2 for lunch (Burleson Park). The pool will be open from 10AM till 7PM for open swim and games.
