Chagrin Falls 4th of July Community Celebration Cancelled

June 17, 2020                                                                                     

CHAGRIN FALLS, OH: The Chagrin Falls Historical Society and Museum, along with our partners Safe Routes Chagrin and the Daughters of the American Revolution: Molly Chittenden Chapter, announces that the 4th of July Community Celebration for 2020 has been cancelled. The health, safety, and welfare of our volunteers, staff, and residents takes top priority. This was a difficult decision but having large events puts the community at risk and we must do our best to stay safe and continue to follow social distance guidelines. We can’t wait to celebrate next year with our beloved ceremony, pet parade, bike parade, and more family fun!

Thank you to everyone for understanding and for all of our community partners during our usual 4th of July celebrations-Chagrin Valley Chamber of Commerce; Chagrin Valley Jaycees; Chagrin Falls Police Department; Molly Chittenden Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution; Highway Garage and Auto Body Center; PetPeople; Safe Routes Chagrin; Bob Shimits; USO Northern Ohio West Geauga Care Package Facility; Village of Chagrin Falls; Tod White.
