South Elgin’s 4th Of July Celebration

Jul 4, 2022

10:15 am - 12:00 pm

Panton Mill Park South Elgin, IL

The Village of South Elgin welcomes you to celebrate the 4th of July at Panton Mill Park. Village President Steve Ward will emcee a morning filled with patriotic spirit, festive joy and local entertainment.
Beginning at 10:15am:
• Presentation of Colors by Fox Valley Young Marines
• Pledge of Allegiance
• National Anthem performed by Russell Hoke
• Performance by Elite Dance Academy
• Performance by National Karate School
• A rousing performance by South Elgin High School Marching Storm!
And while you’re at the park, don’t miss the 4th of July floats/displays from local community organizations and complimentary refreshments. Also, South Elgin’s Dairy Queen will be available too.
Parking options: Water Street (in front of Village Hall and south to SEBA Park), the new municipal lot at State and LaFox, municipal annex lots plus local side streets.
For those who might’ve missed last week’s news, the traditional South Elgin 4th of July Parade was cancelled due to lack of participants. As an alternative, the Village Board approve a plan to host this year’s new approach. Please come down to Panton Mill Park to cheer the SEHS marching band, engage with the organizations and their decorated floats/vehicles, and use it as a launch pad for your enjoyable Independence Day ahead!
