Sun City’s Ring That Bell Celebration


Recreation Centers of Sun City is pleased to announce the 40th Annual Ring That Bell Ceremony on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 in the Bell Center Social Halls beginning at 9:00am.

This patriotic, time-honored tradition celebrates our nation’s birthday in unique Sun City AZ style with Uncle Sam serving as the Master of Ceremonies.

However, the celebration doesn’t stop there. The fun continues at Bell Lanes for RCSC Cardholders and their escorted guests as we salute America with an old fashioned “indoor” picnic from 11am to 2pm. We’ll have free bowling, shuffleboard, billiards and darts along with music, dancing and lots more so count on plenty of good times and fun for everyone attending – guaranteed!

This year George’s Café will be offering Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches served with chips and bottled water for $6 per person. Donations collected at this event will benefit the Sun City Foundation, this year’s RCSC Management Team’s chosen charity.

Stop by and Ring That Bell! It is certain to be an all-American, only in Sun City AZ kind of celebration.

The Bell Recreation Center is located at 16820 N. 99th Ave.

Later that day, keep on celebrating with the Sun City All Stars Big Band Independence Day Celebration Concert at the Mountain View Recreation Center which begins at 3:00pm, doors open at 2:15pm. Sponsored by the Sun City Players Community Theater, this concert is free and open to the public.

The All Stars Big Band began with a group of 20 handpicked former professional musicians who retired in the Sun City area and this decades-old tradition continues under the direction of Clark Chaffee, who is also musical director for the West Valley Wind Ensemble and associate conductor of the West Valley Pops Band. This is certain to be a 4th of July performance that will keep the audience wishing for more. Donations will be graciously accepted at the end of the concert to help defray expenses.

The Mountain View Center is located at 9749 N. 107th Ave., both in Sun City.
