Ridgewood Fourth of July Celebration
Please join us for the 106th annual Ridgewood Fourth of July Celebration on Monday, July 4th, 2016.
The theme for the Parade this year is “America the Beautiful – Celebrating 100 Years of our National Parks” Our theme this year honors the creation of the National Park Service through the Organic Act of 1916 signed by President Woodrow Wilson and originated by President Theodore Roosevelt.
Each year, the Fourth of July Celebration Committee chooses a theme that celebrates a certain aspect of American history or culture. The theme also serves as the basis for the float competition held among the town’s elementary schools.
Thank you for your continued support of this great tradition!
