07/02/2022 - The Firecracker Mile Returns Better Than Ever After Covid Slumber! Register Today!
Arnold, CA...Six Days from race day (July 2, 2022)! We're putting everything in order and we hope you will join us in this fun race to celebrate Independence Day! Register at https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=94836 Once an Arnold Independence Day Parade tradition, the Firecracker Mile is a mile race that kicks off the Independence Day parade, beginning at the Arnold Byway and ending at Cedar Center. It's a great way to participate in the parade if you're not already on a float, and we hope you'll join us as we promote fitness and raise money for Hazel Fischer Elementary Parents Club.



















Race registration
Registration will be $10 for all Calaveras kids and $15 for all other participants. Littles riding in strollers will cost $5. Minors must be registered by a parent or guardian. Sorry but there will be no refunds if you cannot race. Runners and walkers have three opportunities to register: (1) online at ultrasignup.com through June 30, (2) in person from 4 - 6 pm July 1 at Big Trees Market, or (3) in person the morning of the race. All participants will be given shirts on a first come, first served basis.

Bib pick-up
Runners and walkers who have registered online can pick up their race bibs at Big Trees Market from 4 - 6 pm on Friday, July 1. Otherwise bibs can be picked up at the registration table at the start of the race on July 2.

Day of the event
Same-day registration will start at 8:00 am at the bottom of the Arnold Byway on July 2. There is no parking at the Byway as this is the staging area for parade floats. Participants are encouraged to park at Cedar Center. A bus will pick runners up at Cedar Center at 8:45 am and 9:15 am and deliver them to the race start. Runners who do not make it on the bus for the 9:15 am departure will need to find a way to the race start on their own. The road closes at 9:30 am and doesn't re-open until the parade is over, so please plan accordingly. Pre-race warm-ups will commence at 9:45 am, and the race will begin promptly at 9:50 am (pending the highway closure). T-shirts and snacks will be available in the parking lot of El Dorado Savings Bank. This is also where racers can meet up with their families.

Awards
Awards for the top three individuals (male and female) in each category will receive a medal upon finishing the race. Categories are Preschool - 1st grade, 2nd - 5th grade, 6th - 8th grade, 9th - 12th grade, adult, and senior (55+). Categories are based on where the participant will be in the fall of 2022.

After the race
After the race, stick around and enjoy the annual Arnold Independence Day parade from 10-11 along the same route as the Firecracker Mile.
07/02/2022 - The 2022 Ironstone Vineyards Independence Day Celebration!
Murphys, CA...Get ready for a day of live music, craft vendor booths, food, wine and beer, bounce houses and kids activities, a rock climbing wall and, of course, the BEST firework display for miles around.


As many of you know, California’s on-going drought conditions and thereby imminent fire danger is a subject that is not to be taken lightly. While, of course, the enjoyment of our guests remains paramount, it is only surpassed, in terms of importance, by the responsibility of providing a safe atmosphere for our patrons and surrounding community. The combination of the inherent fire danger that hosting a firework show carries and the aforementioned conditions makes navigating such an event very tricky. So tricky that, as many may have noticed, the majority, if not all, of our beloved neighboring shows have been forced to cancel.

We are thankful that, because of our unique venue layout, seasoned professional firework show planners and technicians, support and input from our local and state fire department, and an overall on-going dedication to maintaining the most safe possible experience, we are in a position to carry on with the firework show and provide guests with what we believe is the most fantastic firework show for miles around. However, in the name of safety, there will be some extra precautions taken this year. Primarily in terms of the height of the fireworks that we use for the show.

While in years past our highest-flying fireworks shot up between 500 and 600 ft., this year we will keep our fireworks to around (or under) 200 ft. It should be noted that, the number of fireworks we will use will not change and the overall brilliance of the fireworks will not be sacrificed. We simply need to keep the show a bit lower in the name of safety.

Also, because of the heightened awareness and attention to fire safety this year, CHP will be especially sensitive to those who try to park on 6 Mile Rd. outside and around our venue. Those who try to do so, can almost guarantee to be ticketed and/or towed.

Of course, should we experience a further decrease in the air humidity, higher temperatures, or increased windspeeds, this is subject to change. We will be sure to notify the public every step of the way. Again, we are so thankful for the opportunity to be able to host such an incredible event that we, as well as our
community, have all been looking forward to so very much.

See you all on July 2nd!
