Yorkville officials never gave up on hopes to make Fourth of July fireworks happen.

"We're definitely going to do fireworks on the Fourth," Yorkville Mayor John Purcell said.

The United City of Yorkville posted a celebration update on the city website:

This year, we are offering three, vehicle neighborhood parades for families to enjoy from their own front yard and ending the day with the spectacular fireworks show near Route 47 and Countryside Parkway at dusk. This year, there will not be any organized activities at Town Square.

Neighborhood parades

A vehicle parade will be organized in the southern, central and northern subdivisions, each starting at different times on the morning of July 4. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to
decorate and enter a vehicle within one or all three parades to show American pride or to highlight a business.

Participating floats do not need to confirm participation, simply arrive at the lineup location about 30 minutes before the parade is scheduled to begin. This is a vehicle-only parade, walkers will not be able to participate. Also, floats will not be allowed to throw candy or distribute any items from their vehicle, and families are asked to follow all social distancing guidelines while viewing the parade. They ask that vehicles not park on the road along the parades routes.
