Mark your calendars for 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 4th, rain or shine! The Sea Cliff Civic Association invites you to attend a gala celebration of America’s Declaration of Independence on the John Burns Village Green, in front of the adult library.
The Civic Association is planning a program that will include ringing the village bell, the presentation of colors, a short play about the signers of the Declaration, refreshments and much more. The morning’s event will begin with a reading of the Declaration of Independence by a variety of Sea Cliff villagers. When the Reading ends, there will be a bicycle parade from the Village Green down Sea Cliff Ave. to Lincoln Plaza where refreshments will be served. Children are invited to decorate their bicycles, wagons, scooters and strollers (no roller skates, skateboards or pets) with patriotic flair. They can do this on their own or join others on Saturday, July 1at 10 a.m. on the front lawn at the Children’s Library. Although the Reading will take place, rain or shine, the parade will depend on clear weather.
Be sure to be there and bring your family and friends. Start this holiday by remembering what the picnics and fireworks are really all about.
