On June 20th, Mayor Pro Tem Lee Wells proclaimed Ridgefield an official “Fourth of July City!”
We encourage residents to take pride in our history, look to the future with confidence and celebrate our independence with hometown festivities in historic downtown Ridgefield, and then enjoy the fireworks display at Clark County’s inaugural “4th at the Fairgrounds.”
