4th of July

Starting July 3rd, Hebron will light up the night sky and celebrate the day with our Independence Day Celebra-tions!

As usual, our Annual Fireworks Dis-play will be held at Hebron Schools’ East side lots at dusk on Sunday, July 3rd. There will be food vendors pre-sent again this year! Parking is in the lots at Hebron Schools, with entry from both Main Street (Highway 2) and Utility Drive off of Sigler Street (Highway 8).

Then, on Monday, July 4th, the day begins bright and early with the An-nual Fireworks 5k Run/Walk, starting and ending at Hebron School’s park-ing lot at 7:45 a.m.. It costs $25 plus $2.50 entry fee, for ages 11 and up and $5 for those 10 and under. All participants will receive a goody bag. All 10 and under participants will re-ceive a medal. Overall female and male awards and age group awards 1st-3rd for female and male divisions which are: 10 and under, 11-13, 14-16, 17-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-70, and 70+.

Our annual Parade will start at 10 a.m. The Parade runs from Hebron Schools, along Main Street, to the Country Square Mall (Pav’s/Patz). Our local American Legion Post will be leading the parade, in which we have Americana at its finest; Fire Trucks, Police Cars, floats, horses, antique cars, candy and much more. Did we mention candy? You may want to arrive early as this is a very popular parade and good spots fill up by 9:30 a.m. usually. Main Street will be closed to all traffic starting right before the parade, so you need to be parked before then or wait an hour and a half to move again.

The Annual Turtle Derby follows right after the parade in the 1st Source parking lot, at 12 noon.

We hope to see all of you there!

Hebron Parks News

 

Summer Camp Fun Day

June 27—July 1st

The Park Board sponsored a new event this year for the kids in town; fun days in the parks. Every day, this children, ages 5 to 10, met at the Community Center and had a blast doing arts and crafts, games, fun play activities in the parks, and much more! Some of the pictures from it are below.

Thank you to all the parents and children for making the event such a success and we hope to see you next year again!

 

Park Bench Recycling Pro-ject update

You may have noticed the new benches in the parks lately, but did you know they were made from the recycled caps the Park Board is collecting?

You can help us by keeping all plastic lids and taking them to Patz, Russ’ Print Shop and The Advertiser, Andrea’s Thrift and Gift, and many more business around town. It is great for the environment and truly something we can call our very own!
