The 4th of July in the Fraser Valley is going to look a little different this year. The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce has gotten creative to keep our community safe and healthy. Unfortunately, we can’t have fireworks this year, but we are ready to celebrate America’s birthday with our first annual Front Porch 4th of July weekend celebration.
