2021 Fourth of July: Celebrate Together…ish

Although the CDC guidelines and the requirements of Parks and Rec continue to evolve, we have planned events for both Saturday, July 3, and Sunday, July 4, which will knock your red, white and blue socks off!

1) Saturday, July 3

  • Kiddie Parade – Show up at 10:00 am with your decorated bikes, trikes, wagons, scooters, strollers, pets, or anything else decorated that moves – and we will take care of the social distancing, so that the kiddos can show off their creativity parading around the park.
  • Food Trucks –
    Kona Ice will be here, and will be free thanks to CyMack’s generous sponsorship!
    And Ajumama – Korean Street Food with their delicious bulgogi cheesesteak, along with hot dogs and chicken tenders for the youngsters, and french fries aplenty!
    We will put cones out for you to safely line up.
  • No Midway Games this year – but we will be handing out craft kits and goody bags after the Kiddie Parade.
    And make sure your kids get their Patriotic Peanuts Cups with lids & straws, which have patriotic Peanuts characters illustrations, ready for kids to color and use, and generously sponsored by Sassafras Bakery, with a coupon for Sassafras in each cup.
  • House Decorating Competition – To close out our first day of events, you are invited to get out your red, white and blue decorations by no later than 5:00 pm, for the second annual 4th of July house decorating contest. The secret judges will be driving around the neighborhood between 5:00 and 7:00 pm to vote on the best, and results will be posted on our Facebook page later that evening.

2) Sunday, July 4

Good morning, Colonial Hills! Happy 4th of July!

  • We will be holding an In-person 5k Race this year at 8:30 am at Selby Park!
  • And, the same as last year, we will also be holding a Virtual Run, which you can complete any time between July 4 and July 10.

Please see the 5k Race blogpost below for details, and go to our race website: https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Worthington/RunthroughtheHills to sign up for either the in-person race or the virtual run.

And don’t forget to sign up now, before registration closes at midnight on July 2 (there is no “day-of” registration this year before the race).
