Mammoth is amazing in the summer, mostly because the days are long, temperatures mild to warm, and everyone is outdoors, especially the kids. Most of us think of Mammoth as an adult playground, but I think it is the kids who have the most Mammoth 4th of July Runfun making Mammoth real estate a wonderful investment for families.

Take the 4th of July. It is a weekend filled with activities geared around the whole family. I always tell my clients who have children that they need to make a point of coming to Mammoth to celebrate the 4th of July. The day starts out with an all you can eat pancake breakfast held by the Lyon’s Club. Then after you are nice and full, there’s the Footloose Freedom Mile Family Run, or walk, down Old Mammoth that ends at Main Street where the parade starts. The participants in the run range from Olympic runners to toddlers running with their dogs. I personally ran it pushing my two year old in her stroller while she waved at everyone like she was a princess on a float.

After that, everyone gathers in their lawn chairs on the sidewalk of either Old Mammoth, or Main Street, to watch what is loosely called a parade. There are very few floats, but there is plenty of entertainment. Kids especially like it since most people in the parade toss a lot of candy out for them to catch. Once that ends the Mammoth Fire Department holds an open house so the kids can explore the fire trucks or get a tour of the fire house.  There is also “Pops in the Park” where you can relax on the grass and enjoy a 45-piece orchestra playing patriotic and other favorite music. You can wrap up the day by going down to Crowley Lake and a spectacular fire work show.

Also, the day before, or sometimes the day after, there is a fire work show and music up at The Village. On top of all of this there are the usual fun things to do; mountain biking, hiking, and fishing. I strongly suggest coming up next year to see what it’s all about and discover another reason to fall in love with Mammoth. To view all events throughout the year go to www.visitmammoth.com.
