Countdown to our 2021 Independence Day Celebration
WE’RE BACK! Plans underway for big 2021
After a year off due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the annual Rotary Club of Westerville Independence Day Celebration IS BACK for 2021.
The City has granted permits for our 2021 event! The celebration of our nation’s birthday this year is slated for SATURDAY, July 3.
Rotary Independence Day 5K Walk/Run
The Rotary Club of Westerville Independence Celebration starts with a 5K run/walk at 8 a.m. at the Westerville Sports Complex, 325 N. Cleveland Ave. This is a LIVE RACE again for 2021 — NOT a virtual event. A Fun Run for children follows at 9:15 a.m.
No parade this year
Rotary Club of Westerville Concert Series & Food Truck Festival
The free concert with live bands starts at 5 p.m. at a new larger venue, the Westerville Sports Complex, 325 N. Cleveland Ave. (just across Cleveland Avenue from the Westerville Community Center). The free music will continue through dusk. DJ James Minter will entertain between acts.
Several food trucks will be on hand to provide food and beverage options for attendees.
Rotary Club of Westerville Fireworks Show
Stick around to catch the wonderful Westerville Fireworks Show over the stage at 10 p.m., presented with patriotic music broadcast live by 104.9FM The River. The fireworks beginning in 2021 will be let off from Heritage Park, and launched toward the Sports Complex. The concert venue should provide a great place to catch the show!
Lights of Liberty
Our drive-through patriotic lights display returns for its second year, presented by Butch Bando’s Fantasy of Lights. The show will run from 9:30-11:30 p.m., June 25 through July 2 at Westerville North High School, 950 County Line Road.
Lights of Liberty is a great alternative to traditional fireworks for those with mobility issues, PSTD or similar conditions. Admission is $10 a car. Proceeds will go to SEALKIDS.
