• Boy Scout Troop No. 482 hosts its traditional pancake breakfast from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Fairfield Moose Lodge, 623 Taylor St. in Fairfield. There is a fee.

• The Fairfield Independence Day parade, “Stars & Stripes Forever,” kicks off at 10 a.m. at Webster and Kentucky streets, proceeding west past the Fairfield Community Center before turning south on Taylor Street and then marching east through downtown on Texas Street.

• A Fourth of July celebration on the Suisun City waterfront starts at 11 a.m., with about 40 food and craft vendors on the promenade as well as live entertainment and family activities.

    Happy Independence Day! Have a safe and sane holiday. If you live in Fairfield, please remember your children will be learning from the examples you set today. Fireworks are illegal and illegal fireworks are especially dangerous. Enjoy!
