Winnetka’s 2016 Fourth of July Celebration May Be Over, But You Can Still Show Your Support

Posted June 24, 2016

The Fourth of July Celebration is the largest and most expensive community-wide celebration that takes place in Winnetka annually (at least these past 128 years).  Financial support for this event comes primarily through the Winnetka Park District, Village of Winnetka and the Winnetka Parks Foundation.   Secondary financial support comes through the business partnership program and from Boy Scout Troop 20.  The third level of support comes through private donations from community members.

Please show your support in 2016, and consider being PATRIOTIC please.
