Area residents and visitors turned out in droves Monday for the annual Ridgefield 4th of July Celebration. After two years of restrictions due to the COVID pandemic, the more than 100-year-old event returned to a full schedule of activities this year.
The day got underway with the Fun Run, followed by the Pet & Kid Pre-Parade. The event centerpiece, the 4th of July Parade followed at 11 a.m. as the 4th of July Festival and other activities were taking place throughout the city including live entertainment and street dancing. There was even a Pie Eating Contest.
The day concluded with a Laser Light Show in Abrams Park.
Here is a look at that day’s events through the camera lens of photographer Mike Schultz of Schultz Photography.
