2020 PROGRAM
Tenatative Date
Saturday, September 12th

With a prudent view regarding the health of our community, the Allendale Holiday Observers will be postponing our Fourth of July events with a tentative reschedule date of Saturday, September 12 (rain date: Sept. 13).

 

We regret the need to postpone this unique Allendale holiday tradition and it is a decision we do not make lightly.  But it is our hope that we will have a full celebration on the rescheduled date, including but not limited to our traditional athletic events and food service during the day with music and fireworks in the evening.  This decision was made with the complete support of the Mayor, the Police Department and all aspects of town management. We thank them for their continuous support of our efforts on behalf of the community.

 

While July 4, 2020 will not feature the usual slate of Holiday Observer events, we are confident that the town of Allendale will rise to the occasion yet again and find new ways to observe this important day in our nation’s history. We will certainly be ready to do our part.
