2020 Virtual 4th of July Celebration

2020 Virtual Fourth of July Celebration
The City of Highland Park and the Park District of Highland Park have made the difficult decision to cancel the annual in-person Fourth of July celebrations due to COVID-19 health concerns. The Independence Day festivities include the community parade, Fourth Fest family event, the Bitter Jester Music Festival, fireworks display, and Float & Fireworks event at Hidden Creek AquaPark. More information is available in the cancellation announcement.

However, the City, Park District, and other partners look forward to a virtual celebration this year! Explore ways to get involved below.
