Fourth of July Celebration Needs Your Help

Landmark Short Creek observance at 19% funding of $15,000 goal

HILDALE/COLORADO CITY – The Fourth of July celebration is coming up quickly, and Short Creek Festivities needs your help turn the new and improved Cottonwood Park into a party. Short Creek Festivities, started by George and Merriam Jessop, are in their third year of providing breakfast, music, local vendors, a parade, and fireworks to the Short Creek community.

“Short Creek Festivities is a committee of life long residents of the combined communities of Hildale, Utah, Colorado City, Arizona and Centennial Park, Arizona. We are determined to rebuild our communities and see them begin to thrive economically and socially.”

Entertainment this year includes musical acts, dance routines, and of course a fireworks display to cap the evening. YOU can help by donating to the cause, and of course, attending the celebration on our nation’s birthday.
