We are excited to announce that Blue Mountain Plumbing, Heating and Cooling is a proud sponsor of the 2019 Happy Birthday America Parade and Events to take place over Independence Day Weekend in Staunton, VA. Since 1970, Happy Birthday America’s events have provided an annual celebration of the 4th of July for the residents and businesses in Greater Staunton to participate in. The events feature a fun way to learn about the history of our great nation while commemorating Independence Day and strengthening the community. And, thanks to the volunteers and sponsors, all events are low-cost or free!
With the first celebration dating back to 1970, each year’s Happy Birthday America celebration has been a great success. We are especially excited about sponsoring this year’s festivities, as it is the 50th anniversary!
