Sponsors, ball-playing teams needed for big Carnation Fourth

The Carnation 4th of July Celebration Committee is once again gearing up for the best possible 4th of July velebration.

Sponsorships are being sought to maintain the events, including the fireworks display, fun run, parade, car show, and other needs.

The celebration costs about $34,000 to put on. Last year was one of the biggest and best-attended events ever.

Sponsors are being sought at various levels. Sponsors can get their name listed in promotions, including on T-shirts and banners.

Lisk says she’d love to see local businesses put together teams for the annual Just Moo It 3-on-3 basketball game.

“Think about it,” Lisk said in an e-mail. “I could see Bob and Ron, (Ace Hardware) playing against Eric and Marilyn (BTP) or even Kerrie and Todd (Carnation Laundry/Tolt Storage) playing,  just to name a few. Come on and let’s make this a fun Fourth of July celebration.”

CleanScapes, the city’s new garbage collectors, has donated all the garbage and recycling service for the event this year.

“We are off to a good start,” says Lisk.
