For the first time in ten years, Napa Sunrise Rotary can’t produce our famous parade, but we can still celebrate America’s birthday. We’re creating a virtual experience by traveling the City of Napa on July 4 th and doing live interviews (social distancing of course) and showcasing businesses, families and neighborhoods.

Napa Sunrise Rotary is proud to announce:

The 4th of July Community Contest

What are the contests?

Three contests are open to all City of Napa residents:

  • Best patriotically costumed pet
  • Best 4th of July decorated home
  • Best decorated vehicle

Photo or short video submittals for these contests will be accepted through June 15, 2020 (info below). A winner will be chosen by the Past Presidents of Napa Sunrise Rotary. Prizes will be awarded to one entry of each category on the morning of July 4th. Each contest winner will receive a gift card for $250.00 dollars which they may keep or donate to a charity of their choice.

Send submittals to: or complete the participation form on this page.

Winners will be notified on the morning of July 3, 2020 and awarded their prizes the morning of July 4th, in a special drive by event. We know this means getting in the spirit of the 4th early, but that just makes things more fun.

Note: We reserve the right to use videos at our discretion. We may combine video/photo submissions. We reserve the right to make all editorial decisions.

Virtual 4th of July Memories/Activities on Facebook

This virtual campaign centers around the question “What does 4th of July Mean to You”. Ask that question of yourself and/or your family and friends and take a photo, make a sign, do a short (10-20 second video) answering that question. Post on social with the hashtag #Napa4th. Submit it to the Parade Committee at:
