July 4 Celebration

Saturday, July 4, 2020


12 to 2 p.m.: Ice Cream
Come to the Lawton Center where Ben & Jerry’s will be serving 5 flavors of its namesake pre-packed ice cream.  Servings will be placed on two tables for easy, non-contact retrieval.

12 to 2 p.m.: Scavenger Hunt
The Town’s Scavenger Hunt for home holiday decorations will be focused on the area of Town within a 2-3 block radius of the Lawton Center, although all are welcome to decorate their homes.  The Scavenger Hunt list is available here.  There are beads, flags and other patriotic items for the children, and decorations for homeowners.  The final pick up for supplies will be on Friday, July 3 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Lawton Center.  Please note that the July Forecast indicates this event will start at 12:30 p.m.  However, the revised start time is 12 p.m.

12:30 & 1:30 p.m.: Rockville Concert Band Ensemble
An ensemble of the Rockville Concert Band will play celebratory music from 12:30 to 1 p.m. in Zimmerman Park and from 1:30 to 2 p.m. at the Lawton Center.  Please use appropriate social distancing, wear masks, and stay in your family “pods.”  The County now allows outdoor gatherings of no more than 50, so no more than 40 people should be gathered near the 10 band members.  

Commemorate the Day: Take Photos!

Please take photographs of you and your families, decorated homes, and the band while you are out enjoying the day, then upload them here.  A photo essay will be created and distributed afterwards on various social media.

Declaration of Independence Video: Finally, we will be able to hear it clearly!
Scout Troop 255 has created a video of the recordings done by Town residents, aged 7-91, reading the Declaration of Independence.  The video will be presented to the Town on July 4 via social media, including the Town website and Town Neighbors.  Many thanks to the hard work done by the Scouts.

The rain date for these events is Sunday, July 5 from 12 pm. to 2 p.m.
