Celebrate July 4th on San Jose property.San Jose is a terrific community to live in. One of the reasons San Jose property continues to steadily increase in value and there are so many buyers hunting for San Jose real estate is because the local area is teeming with free family-friendly activities. These events bring the local community together. This July 4th, don't hang around at your San Jose property. Instead visit the July 4th Fun Festival at Almaden Lake Park, located at 15652 Almaden Expressway, San Jose.

Festival guests will get to visit community and local vendor booths, enjoy live music and kids’ games, eat delicious food from food trucks and watch a terrific fireworks show.

For folks who love costume parties and costume contests, prizes will be awarded for Best Family, Most Patriotic, Funniest, Most Original, Craziest, Most Colorful, Most Unusual and Judge’s Choice.

The festival opens at 2pm. The children’s parade and costume contest begins at 5pm. The headliners start to croon at 6pm, and the fireworks boom at 9:15pm. The festivities are totally free, no advance tickets necessary!

Two other fireworks shows to consider attending are the Rotary Club’s Centennial Fireworks at Discovery Meadow and a fireworks display at San Jose Giants Municipal Stadium.
