The Evanston 4th of July Association celebrates 100 years!
Unlike many Independence Day celebrations in other cities, the festivities in Evanston are produced entirely by the Evanston Fourth of July Association, which is completely voluntary and funded by the community. No tax money is used for the actual production of the sporting activities, parade, twilight band show or fireworks. The following list is all the events planned for this centenary celebration. Thank you, Evanston 4th of July Association!
9am until fireworks at 9.30pm
