Fourth of July Action!

We’re going BIG this year — and we're asking for your help. Keep reading to learn how you can contribute and keep the doors open!

This is our 10th year in a row participating in Mt. Shasta’s July 4th activities. Help make it a successful anniversary!



First, thank you for your interest in helping our program. The July 4th Week is our time to be seen by the community and share what we do. These are important outreach and fundraising activities and we can use all the help we can get.


Second, we do what we do in order to offer something unique to our community. Participating in the biggest community events of the year is one way we seek to be connected to that wider community.


Third, we can’t do without you. Your support allows us to continue doing what we do — all year long.

July 4 Parade

Flying Side Kick at the Castle Street Stage: July 5, 2013
One of our highlights in 2013 was the demonstration at the Castle Street Stage on July 5 for the annual street fair. Here, Vitaliy Tveritin, 12, launches into a flying side kick that turns wood boards into toothpicks.


Waste Management

WHAT:    The Mount Shasta Chamber of Commerce is giving MSMAP the opportunity to be in charge of Trash Management for the 4th of July Street Fair.


WHEN:    Sunday, Monday & Tuesday: July 2, 3, & 4.


WHERE:    All over downtown: South Mt. Shasta Blvd. between Lake and Alma Streets and on Castle Street.

HOW TO HELP:    We need people to empty trash cans, put in a new trash liner, and move trash to the main dumpsters. The workload varies depending upon the time of day. It's important to ensure that trash doesn't overflow all over the sidewalks and streets.

NOTES:    Wear sunscreen and bring some work gloves. This is a huge commitment. We’re asking a lot, but we really need people to step up for at least one 3 or 4 hour shift.

Fun Run & Walk

WHAT:    A series of demonstrations as thousands of people stroll-by.


WHEN:    Tuesday, July 4 / 8 to 9:30am.


WHERE:    In front of the hospital.

HOW TO HELP:    We need people in clean uniforms to participate in very simple mini-demonstrations during the Fun Walk.

NOTES:    Wear light shoes (not flip-flops). Heavy shoes will only slow you down and make you tired. Wear sunscreen. If you’re driving, you can park in the hospital parking lot before they close the streets at 6:45am. Otherwise, arrive before 8am to review.

Water Station #3

WHAT:    Fill-up water cups for runners. Clean-up empty cups off the street.


WHEN:    Set-up begins at 7:30 and station needs to keep busy during the race and until the last runner cruises past.


WHERE:    The west side of the Lake Street overpass over I-5 (near the CHP station).

HOW TO HELP:    Keep the water cups full as runners pass by. Clean up the street of empty cups when it’s clear of runners. Clean-up all discarded cups off the street after the race.

NOTES:    It's best to be there by 7:30am to set-up and be ready before the race begins. Bring a long garden hose to use to fill up cups at table.
