We need your help, Glenview. The fantastic parade and spectacular fireworks show costs exceed $70,000 and are paid entirely with donations made by our residents and businesses. Our ability to continue to provide this wonderful celebration depends on your support.
Show your commitment to your community and country by making a donation! Everyone who donates $50 or more will receive a special Glenview 4th yard sign to show your friends and neighbors that you proudly support our community. Interested in becoming a sponsor?

The parade route begins at Harlem Avenue and Glenview Road and travels south on Harlem before turning west onto Central and ending at Johns Park. The parade route will be lined on both sides in red. Please stay on the SafeSide, behind the red line. Children are invited to step off the parade by bringing their decorated bike to Harlem Avenue, just north of the Glenview Public Library by 10:30 a.m. Free, no pre-registration required. Bike helmets are recommended.
Twilight Fireworks Show begins at 7 p.m. at Gallery Park (behind Park Center)
Sponsored by Glenview State Bank
Join your friends and neighbors for the twilight fireworks you enjoy every year, with some great new changes based on your feedback. The fireworks will be longer and bigger than ever, and you will have an opportunity to enjoy food from local vendors. The show begins with a patriotic concert by the 100-piece North Shore Concert Band. The fireworks show will be synchronized to patriotic music.
Following the fireworks, music entertainment will be available if you prefer to linger while the crowd disperses. The Village and Police Department have developed a new traffic exit strategy. Click here for more information.
If you want to skip the traffic entirely, ride your bike to the celebration! Six different bike parking stations will be available throughout Gallery Park.
