Independence Day Celebrations Rescheduled for Labor Day Weekend
Damage from the July 1, 2012 severe storm prevented the Wheaton Park District from holding its Fourth of July fireworks and parade originally scheduled for July 3 and July 4, respectively. The Wheaton Park District announced these Independence Day celebrations have been rescheduled for Labor Day weekend, Sept. 2-3, 2012.
On Sunday, Sept. 2, the Wheaton Park District invites the community to Graf Park starting at 5 p.m. for a picnic and family activities, followed by the fireworks show just after sunset. Graf Park is located adjacent to the DuPage County Fairgrounds at 1701 Manchester Road in Wheaton.
On Monday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day), the parade will step off at 9 a.m. from Main Street and Hawthorne. For information about participating in the parade, call Sherry Krajelis at 630-510-5051 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details for these events are still being finalized. Information will be posted as soon as it becomes available on the Wheaton Park District’s website at www.wheatonparkdistrict.com.
