The Town of Windsor is set to hold its annual Fourth of July celebration at Boardwalk Park with a special dog-friendly race, snack food vendors and a fireworks display.

The Fourth of July Four-Legged Fun Run, a dog-friendly race around Windsor Lake, will begin at 8 a.m. with registration starting at 7 a.m. The $20 entry fee includes an exclusive race T-shirt; pre-register by 8 a.m. July 3 for a $5 discount. To register for the Fun Run, visit Web Trac.

Fireworks will launch at approximately 9:10 p.m. Attendees are invited to bring picnic baskets, lawn chairs and blankets for convenience and comfort.

The north section of the Windsor Lake Trail, including the dog swim beach, will be closed immediately following the Fourth of July Four-Legged Fun Run for fireworks setup. Fifth Street will be closed to the public at 7 a.m. July 4 for handicap parking only, while 6th and 7th Street turn lanes will close at dusk. Additional handicap parking will be available in the Boardwalk Park parking lot off Birch Street, along with a loading and unloading zone.

To help ensure a safe Fourth of July celebration, the public is asked to respect the following:

  • Glass is not permitted in town parks, and the maximum alcohol content by weight is 3.2 percent in cans only, no wine.
  • Charcoal grills are prohibited, as well as gas grills more than 300 square inches and tanks weighing more than 1 pound or 16 ounces.
  • Tents and portable shelters are prohibited after 6 p.m.
  • Pets must be on leash at all times. For your pet’s comfort, it is recommended to leave them at home during the fireworks display.
