1 PATRIOTIC PARTY: The city’s many volunteers will be honored and saluted during the 69th annual Damboree. The day-long Fourth of July celebration kicks off at 7 a.m. with pancakes in Bicentennial Park and concludes around 11 p.m. with musical entertainment in Veterans’ Memorial Park. In between there will be a parade, games, contests, food, drink and, of course, a fireworks show (it starts at 9 p.m. at Veterans’ Memorial Park). With temperatures expected to be over 100 F, the parade’s water zone is sure to be a hit. Details can be found at http://www.bcnv.org/351/Damboree-Celebration.
2 PSYCHEDELIC HARMONY: Described as candy grunge and dream psych, the music of Foresteater is hard to categorize. The Phoenix, Arizona-based band will perform at Boulder Dam Brewing Co. on Friday evening. Mikey Pro created the ensemble in 2015 after dreaming about a band playing on an island in outer space surrounded by electric rainbows. Music begins at 8 p.m. The Brewpub is at 453 Nevada Way. Call 702-243-2739 or visit www.boulderdambrewing.com for more information.
