Help Support Next Year’s Independence Day Celebration!

Though this event receives extensive personnel, public works and safety support from the Glenview Park District and the Village of Glenview, direct event expenses 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.
