On Thursday, July 4, the Beaver Creek Parade will leave theSycamore Park area in Lake Montezuma at 9 AM and travel south on Montezuma Avenue past the Village Square. Montezuma Avenue in this section will be closed to other traffic from about 9 until 9:30 AM
This year the Grand Marshal is Betty Hart and the Junior Marshal is Emily Worden. Parade entrants (walkers, animals, vehicles, floats, etc) are requested to sign up at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station or the Beaver Creek Adult Center. (If you can’t sign up, please just show up at 8:15 at Sycamore Park to fill out your announcement information.) The festivities and pancake breakfast will be in Rollins Park at the Lake Montezuma Village Square. The BC Kiwanis Duck Race will be on Wet Beaver Creek by the bridge at Sycamore Park. For inquiries about display tables, entertainment and activities please call Carol Keeton, Kiwanis Vice President, at 928-606-4050. Scheduled events are over about 12:15 PM, so there is plenty of time afterward for family get togethers.
For the past several weeks merchants have been selling Duck Race tickets. Thank you, thank you to the businesses that have been helping the Beaver Creek Kiwanis raise funds for community projects. This year more than $6000 in prizes have been donated by merchants and individuals to make this one of the best races ever. The newest two donations are a gift card from Rask Auto Service and a check from the Storage Corral in Camp Verde. Some of the other donations are on a flyer below. All will be listed at the event!
The Beaver Creek Celebration schedule of events is below. The music and entertainment during the morning is the best we’ve seen in many years. Thank you to the talented folks who are donating their time and to all the volunteers throughout the day!
