Seventh Annual Scottsdale 4th of July is sold out

Posted

The Seventh Annual Scottsdale Fourth of July, benefiting notMYkid, has sold out in time for families and friends to safely enjoy the show from the comfort of their cars.

Scheduled from 7 to 9:30 p.m., July 4, at WestWorld of Scottsdale Polo Fields, 16601 N Pima Rd, the gates open at 7 p.m., according to a press release, noting that the fireworks --- set against the backdrop of McDowell Mountains --- begin at approximately 9 p.m.

The celebration will feature traditional fireworks in an untraditional social distancing setting, the release said, adding that the normal format may resume next year.

In past six years, Scottsdale Fourth of July at WestWorld was traditionally filled with an afternoon of interactive playtime for families in the air-conditioned Tony Nelssen Equestrian Center of WestWorld, a rodeo show in the South Hall, food, and more, capped off by fireworks in the evening, described the release.

Now, the redesigned event requires social Distancing, mask guidelines and the following safety protocols:

  • Cars parked in 20x20 spaces, which were previously 12x20;
  • Safe social distancing and health protocols in place;
  • All staff will wear masks;
  • Patrons must wear masks when outside their vehicle;
  • Contactless ticket scanning from phones or at-home printed tickets to be readily visible;
  • Permanent, sanitary restrooms available; and
  • This is a non-alcohol event, per new state mandate.

Since the WestWorld main entrance, with the horse sculptures, on frontage road will be closed, patrons can use two access points:

  •  94th Street off Bell Road, east of the 101; and
  • Bahia off the Frontage Road, which is accessed on 101 Freeway frontage road, north of Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd, north WestWorld main entrance.

Sponsors of the Scottsdale Fourth of July, benefiting Not My Kid, are Courtesy Volvo of Scottsdale, AquaHydrate, Vienna Beef, M Culinary and R Entertainment, according to the release.

Concessions and refreshments include Vienna Beef Hot Dogs, meat and vegan tacos from The Original AZ Taco Festival Truck, chips, ice cream, kettle corn, snacks, AquaHydrate water and soft drinks.
