With the 2020 Fourth of July Parade canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Village will feature a video of the 2019 Skokie Fourth of July parade on SkokieVision cable channels 17 (Comcast) and 25 (RCN) on July 4 at 12, 2, 4, 6 and 8 p.m. The parade video is approximately 30 minutes in length. 

The video also can be viewed on the Village’s YouTube channel.

See the information from the July/August edition of NewSkokie for ideas for safe family Fourth of July holiday celebrations.

In mid-May, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Village of Skokie and Skokie Park District officials, as well as the Skokie Fourth of July Parade Committee, reached the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Skokie 4th of July parade and 3-D fireworks festival. Although the Skokie area recently entered Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan, the area is not yet in Phase 5 which allows gatherings of more than 50 people, and organizers agreed that both events would pose a significant health risk to the residents of Skokie. The July 4th parade and fireworks festival have been an important celebration in Skokie for decades. With that in mind, organizers will soon begin planning events for July 4, 2021.
