Celebrating Our Country & Our Community

Welcome to Akron Celebration Committee

Fourth of July 2020

Due to the current covid crisis we are forced to change our normal Fourth of July festivities. The fireworks have been cancelled and the traditional gala parade is being modified. Plans are being made for a vehicle “Parade through the Village” on July 4th (see below). This is a great way of thanking our front line workers, first responders and local businesses. If you are interested in participating in the parade you can contact us by email at akroncelebration@gmail.com or Kathy Capan at 542-9605.

Details for the “vehicle parade” on the 4th:

  • 4th of July Parade line-up at 11:00 a.m. – athletic fields at Akron Central School – Bloomingdale Rd
  • Parade to begin at 12:00
  • Social distancing is encouraged and face coverings must be worn when outside of vehicles
  • No throwing of candy or novelty items from the vehicles
  • Vehicle route: Begins at the Athletic fields to Bloomingdale, Bloomingdale to John, John to Buffalo to Buell, Buell to Skyline, Skyline to Crittenden, Crittenden to East Ave, East Ave to Parkview,  Parkview to Main and finishing at the fire hall. 

The Akron Celebration Committee sponsors two main events for the community throughout the year. One is the Fourth of July gala parade and fireworks, the other being the New Year’s Eve ball drop and fireworks. We rely solely on donations and volunteers to make these events happen.

The Akron Celebration Committee is a non-profit organization that is 100% made up of volunteers. Individuals in the community volunteer their time to plan and run the 4th of July celebration and New Year's Eve  Fireworks Display. The task of planning and running these events is no small feat so there is a constant need for more volunteers.

We strive to always provide our community with a quality 4th of July Celebration and Parade for all to enjoy. For it to be great and run smoothly, a strong group of volunteers is needed to make that happen.

We need your help!  All we ask is please volunteer as much time and effort you have available, we always work hard to make volunteering with us a fun and enjoyable experience.
