|Fourth of July Celebration|
The annual Brentwood Fourth of July Celebration is one of the most storied summer traditions in Western Pennsylvania. Our two-day event combines the idyllic, old-fashioned charm of a small town carnival with a diverse assortment of entertainment options.
The festivities begin with the July 3rd street fair presented by the Brentwood Business Owners Association. This neighborly gathering features live music, tasty treats, and challenging games of skill. Additionally, children’s activities are provided by the staff of the Brentwood Public Library. The evening also features the popular Battle of the Barrels, in which local volunteer fire companies engage in a soggy interpretation of tug-of-war.
Brentwood rings in America’s birthday with its yearly Firecracker 5K. Nearly 2000 runners, from the casual to the competitive, participated in the 2012 edition of this exciting event. After our racers cross the finish line, our renowned Independence Day parade commences. Talented marching bands, colorful floats, and local dignitaries proceed along Brownsville Road to the cheer of an estimated 40,000 revelers. Our celebration also includes a classic car cruise, music performances, and a spectacular fireworks display.
The Borough of Brentwood is a unified, family-oriented community with a strong commitment to civic pride and traditions. While preserving these standards, ideals and traditions, the community shall strive to provide a high quality of life for all, a superior educational system and residential areas with a more suburban character. The community shall support established businesses while encouraging future economic development and effective local government, all within a safe and clean environment.
