We are so excited to be able to celebrate the 4th of July with everyone this year! Things will look a little different this year as we are keeping our residents safety in mind. Due to the COVID-19 guidelines and policies, we will NOT be having a 4th of July Festival, but WILL be having an amazing Parade and spectacular Fireworks Display!!!
Join us for our 4th of July Parade beginning at 2:00pm! The parade will begin at Plaza at 501 and travel down Florissant Rd, ending at January-Wabash Park. This year’s theme is "Parading Out of the Pandemic". We are asking our residents to practice social distancing along the parade route. If you are within 6 feet of another person, we ask that you wear your face mask.
