Fourth of July Update:
July 4, 2022:
Out of respect for the victims of the shooting in Highland Park earlier today, and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our community, tonight’s fireworks at Duke Childs Field have been cancelled. The Park District and the Village carefully planned the parade, the events on the Green, and the fireworks, and looked forward to celebrating with you. We are heartbroken the celebration of our country’s founding has been cut short by a violent act in our neighboring community. It is our hope you are able to celebrate the remainder of Independence Day with your families and loved ones. Our thoughts are with our friends and neighbors in Highland Park and all who have been impacted by this tragedy.

Watch local organizations and your neighbors this July 4 as they march in the parade alongside bands, Jesse White Tumblers, Great Lakes Navy Band, jugglers, Uncle Sam on stilts, the Crossmen drill team, and more!
Family, friends, and everyone in between are invited to take part in this patriotic event. To participate, fill out the parade application and email it to Toby Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org or return it to Winnetka Park District at 540 Hibbard Road.
