paint “Grand Finale at Lake Ellyn” to capture the excitement and family experience of our 4th

to enjoy.  We hope it triggers a smile and a special memory every time you view it".

Glen Ellyn 4th of July Celebration!

Bring your family and friends for Glen Ellyn's favorite hometown tradition, the annual Fourth of July Celebration. With the 2019 Parade Grand Marshal, who is celebrating their 100 Year Anniversary, being the Glen Ellyn Park District, the theme for this year is "Park it On the 4th of July"!

The festivities begin on the Saturday before July 4th,  with spills and chills at the annual Lake Ellyn Cardboard Regatta and great food at the FOOD TRUCK Picnic in the Park, a fundraiser for the 4th celebration. 

On July 4th, enjoy a full day of activities, including the Freedom Four ® Four-Mile Run, Glen Ellyn's 4th of July Parade, Afternoon Festivities and Glen Ellyn's Grand Fireworks.
