Firecracker Express - 4th of July



Verde Canyon Railroad celebrates Independence Day with an all-American barbecue at the railroad depot on July 4th prior to the 1:00 p.m. train departure of the Firecracker Express. Our nation’s symbol, the bald eagle, leads the route, its visage adorning mighty mid-century American-built locomotives. The painted eagles will share the day with a real live version here at the depot. The Verde Canyon Railroad proudly welcomes a rescued, educational eagle from Liberty Wildlife from 11:00 am to 12:45 pm. Arrive in Clarkdale early to enjoy the town's well-known old-fashioned 4th of July celebration, beginning at 7:00 am with the Fire Department's pancake breakfast in the historic park, followed by the Children's Parade down Main Street at 9:00 am, and a local community orchestra playing rousing patriotic tunes 'til 11 am. Evening fireworks from Cottonwood may be enjoyed from vantage points throughout the Verde Valley.
