July 4th Fireworks Display Cancelled

Due to concerns for the health and safety of Village residents, Village Council and Administration have cancelled the fireworks celebration scheduled for July 4th, 2020.

Because this event is so popular, it draws a very large crowd.   Even if restrictions have been modified by then, we determined that it would not be safe to have such a large crowd gathered during this pandemic.

While this was a very difficult decision, we feel it is necessary to continue our efforts to keep the Village safe and to deter the spread of the COVID19 virus.

At this time, we are still hopeful that we will be able to have a firework display in September during the Holly Days festival.

While we understand this is disappointing news, we hope to have a huge celebration on July 4th 2021.   By that time, we are optimistic that we will be able to be together and celebrate our independence along with the eradication of this horrible virus.
