Celebrate the 4th of July on the North Shore!

Summer is in full swing on Chicago’s North Shore and the excitement is rising with the 4th of July just around the corner!  Whether you live in Deerfield, Glencoe, Winnetka, Highland Park or Northbrook, or you’re planning on visiting friends and family for the extended holiday weekend; you’re in for a great time on the North Shore!

As a North Shore Real Estate agent, I enjoy showcasing what each community has to offer and great events that take place throughout the year.  I feel it’s important for those relocating to the area to get a feel for the lifestyle that they’re sure to enjoy when they move to the North Shore.  There’s always something to do in these great communities, so no matter where you live on the North Shore; you’ll appreciate the vibrant lifestyle!

Here’s a look at how a few of our North Shore communities are celebrating the 4th!

Deerfield Family Days

Wednesday and Thursday, July 3rd - 4th
- Don’t miss out on the 50th Annual Deerfield Family Days on July 3rd and 4th!  These fun-filled days offer a range of activities!  Fireworks will take place on July 3 at 9:15pm at Brickyards Park and are sure to impress!  On July 4th, kick your day off with a pancake breakfast and an arts and crafts show you can peruse throughout the day.  The Deerfield Rotary Club 10K/5K race/walk will begin at 8am and offers a chance for all fitness levels to be involved!  The rest of the day is filled with the beloved bike parade, petting zoo, pony rides, live entertainment and much more.  You'll enjoy this family friendly weekend in Deerfield!

- Glencoe’s 4th of July celebration is an all day, fun-filled event that’s great for the whole family!  Starting at 8am, you can participate in the 2 mile Rotary Fun Run to get your energy up for the day.  An art fair on the Village Green, Children’s Carnival and parade are just a few of the events taking place during the day.  In the evening, find yourself digging for buried treasure at the Patriotic Treasure Hunt at Glencoe Beach!  The night continues with contests, children’s entertainment and fireworks on the beach!  See the full schedule on the Glencoe Park Districts website
