Gerome says Happy Fourth of July!

In celebration of the Fourth of July, Gerome presents this pamphlet, Live in Davis on the Fourth: the 1956 Fourth of July Program by the Davis Jr. Chamber of Commerce. As you can see the events celebrating the Fourth in Davis that year included: a gala booster dance, a parade, fly-over, baseball, a swim meet, picnic supper, and concert, as well as fireworks. The program also provides a history of the Davis Kiddie Parade, which is still held today.

Do you have any programs from other Fourth of July celebrations in Davis that you’d be willing to donate to us for our collection? If so, please email us at
