4th of July Festivities in the Park – 2019

Join us for our traditional July 4th festivities in the Park!  

Independence Day begins with a Neighborhood Parade at 9:30 am. Everyone is invited to create themed floats and/or decorate bicycle’s to walk in the parade around the Park Drive circle. Prizes will be awarded to all float, bicycle and pet entrants! Park Parade entries assemble in church parking lot at 9:15 am.

The parade is followed by a Flagpole Ceremony in the church parking lot which includes singing the National Anthem and a Patriotic Speech from one of our Park neighbors. The Village of Glenview parade starts from Jackman Park at 11:15 am, heading south on Lehigh, then west on Central, ending at Johns Park. Then it’s back to The Park for our Neighborhood Picnic Lunch in the Pine Grove (near the playground opposite the Church) beginning at 12:30 pm. The event includes hamburgers, hotdogs, races, softball, and of course, lots of fun & visiting with our neighbors and guests. Most have enjoyed ending the day by watching fireworks. The Glenview Twilight Show concert and fireworks display will be at Gallery Park in The Glen (Patriot and Navy Boulevards). Our congregation tends to be a wonderful gathering place for a lot of people on this important national holiday. Here’s to another fantastic celebration!
