NEW!!! Safe and Festive 4th of July Events!

 

 

5/6/21 –  Though we are hopeful that the State of Illinois COVID-19 restrictions will be moving in a positive direction in the coming months, for the safety of our residents, the 4th of July Parade and Fourth Fest event are cancelled. Battle of the Bands and the Fireworks Display may be rescheduled to later in the year if the State of Illinois COVID-19 guidelines allow.  While this was a difficult decision to cancel and postpone our traditional Independence Day celebrations that have been enjoyed by generations of Highland Park residents, the safety of our community is our top priority.

In place of the traditional 4th of July community events, the Park District is hosting a series of small outdoor family friendly events to celebrate our Independence Day.

We wish you and your family a safe and fun 4th of July and hope to see you at our events!
