Tips for an amazing time at Go 4th!

Posted on June 28, 2022


Want to have your best Fourth of July ever? Check out our top tips for enjoying Kettering’s spectacular Go 4th celebration and join us on July 4 from 6 – 10 p.m. at Delco Park.

 Tip #1

Get comfortable for an evening of patriotic fun. Bring chairs, blankets, snacks, refreshments and your camera. Please leave alcohol, tents, drones and pets at home.

Tip #2

Please leave your sparklers and fireworks at home. Don’t worry, we’ve got this covered. We have an awesome fireworks display scheduled to begin at 10 p.m.!

Tip #3

What happens when you host the biggest party of the year? A lot of people show up! Before you head out to Delco Park, plan your route and where you will park. Even better? Walk or ride your bike.

Tip #4

Each year, we put our hearts into planning a fun, active and festive Independence Day celebration for our guests. Go 4th offers live music, a kid’s play zone and tasty concessions.  Review our schedule of events before the big day so you don’t miss a moment of it.

Tip #5

Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate, but we don’t let that dampen our spirits. In most cases Go 4th is held rain or shine. However, if the weather looks questionable, check our Facebook page (PlayKettering) or our website ( for event updates.

Tip #6

Safety of our guests, staff and community is our top priority. Please be aware of your surroundings and the thousands of pedestrians entering and exiting Delco Park.

Tip #7

Go 4th is a no drone zone! Due to safety concerns, drones are prohibited from the festival. You’re welcome to bring handheld cameras and phones to capture the magic. (Please note that police drones will be present, but the public may not bring drones.)
