An Old-Fashioned Fourth


Join us on Thursday, July 4 for An Old-Fashioned Fourth! First, watch the Redwood City Parade. The theme this year is “Our American Heritage.”


After the parade come inside the History Museum to celebrate Independence Day as they did in the 1880s. There will be children’s crafts and a chance to churn ice cream. Kids and adults can both earn a taste by turning the crank on the churn at least 10 times.

Admission is half price.
