Fourth of July is a time to express your patriotic side, revel in the day off of work, and enjoy your family. But you can celebrate with your town, too!
Celebrate Freedom Days and Parade in Sandwich, Illinois. The weekend before the Fourth of July, you can celebrate on Saturday the 2nd and Sunday the 3rd.
At Sandwich Fairgrounds and Knights Park, you can celebrate the 4th of July all weekend long. The Sandwich Park District will be hosting the parade on Saturday at 10am.
Want to do something that requires a little more sweat? You can participate in the Freedom Run 5k or 1-Mile Run on Sunday at 8am. Sign up early or at the race. The starting line is at Knights Park.
At the end of the weekend, you can enjoy a fantastic fireworks display at the Sandwich Fairgrounds. Gates open at 6:00pm and the blasts will start going off at 9:20. While it’s free, a donation of $5 per car is suggested.
There are tons of other activities over the weekend, like kiddie and firefighter water fights on Saturday and a great lunch of chicken and pork chops at the fire station.
