The Elk Grove Village Lions Club has been the the sponsor of the Village’s 4th of July observance for over 40 years. In the 1970s, 80s, and 90s the Club ran a five day carnival, complete with food, beer, rides, and entertainment. Because of the waning interest of the community in such an event over the 4th of July holiday, this event was streamlined into a 1 day event centered around the fireworks display. In recent years the Village acquired the land directly adjacent to Lions Park, and now holds one of the Summer Concerts in the month-long series at the park in conjunction with the fireworks display. We do enjoy being a part of this great event!
