Annual 4th of July Parade & Picnic – 2016!

imagesJoin 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 entrants and new this year, a Pet category! 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. 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.
