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.
