Fourth of July Celebration

Saturday, July 4, 2020

It’s time to get out and celebrate! Join the United City of Yorkville as we host the Annual 4th of July Celebration on Saturday, July 4, 2020. This year, we are offering three vehicle neighborhood parades for families to enjoy from their own front yard and ending the day with the spectacular fireworks show near Rt 47 and Countryside Pkwy at dusk. Due to the current State Guidelines, there will not be any organized activities at Town Square. Please see below or contact the Recreation Department at Recreation@yorkville.il.us for more details on how you can celebrate with us this Independence Day!

Neighborhood Parades

A vehicle parade will be organized in the southern, central and northern subdivisions, each
starting at different times on the morning of July 4. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to
decorate and enter a vehicle within one or all three parades to show your American pride or to highlight your business! Participating floats do not need to confirm participation, simply arrive at the line-up location approximately 30 minutes before the parade is scheduled to begin. Please note, this is a vehicle-only parade, walkers will not be able to participate. Also, floats will not be allowed to throw candy or distribute any items from their vehicle and families are asked to follow all social distancing guidelines while viewing the parade.  We ask that vehicles do not park on the road along the parades routes.
