The annual 4th of July celebration in Volcano Village centers around Cooper Center. It is always on the 4th regardless of the day of the week. In 2020 this will be on a Saturday. It starts off at the Volcano Post Office with a fantastic parade through the village down Old Volcano Road then turns up Wright Road and ending at Cooper Center where all the activities, food and entertainment are. The whole shebang is put together by a dedicated bunch of people including Cooper Center Council and the Volcano Community Association. There is fun and food for the whole family and even the dogs (leashed of course) are allowed for this one day. Download 4th of July Forms:
