On Sunday, July 4 the community of Bement invites you to come celebrate America’s birthday with them. There will be a parade, food vendor, games, and activities at the Forest Preserve Park capped off by a great fireworks show.
The parade starts at 2:00 p.m. If you wish to participate, just make sure you are at the lineup area at the grade school before that time. The parade will follow the traditional route so bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and bags for candy of course.
Post parade, festivities will move to the Forest Preserve Park where games and activities will be taking place. The always popular Bingo game will be held along with a cake walk.
A food vendor will be on hand at the park as well so be sure and grab a bite to eat.
No Fourth of July would be complete without fireworks which will be shot off at dusk.
So, come make it a red, white, and blue day in historic Bement to celebrate Independence Day!
