The Foresthill Divide Chamber of Commerce announces that the Foresthill 4th of July parade and festival in the park are canceled this year due to the Placer County Covid-19 restrictions. Over the past months, the Chamber Board has been diligently working with our town leaders and six Placer County agencies to get permission to hold the July 4th events. We were informed in May that gatherings of more than 10 people would not be sanctioned by the county until at least September.
Our Chamber begins planning for the 4th of July festivities in January. This involves getting necessary county permits (which were rescinded!), booking entertainment, contacting vendors, ordering porta-johnnies, recruiting many volunteers, enlisting parade participants, managing traffic control, and much more.
Chamber Board President, Stephanie Meckler said, “We had every hope that by June 1st, we would get the go-ahead to host the events. We agonized and waited until the very last minute to make the tough decision to cancel the parade and party in the park. We hope the community understands that our hands were tied.”
We, along with our members and fellow residents, take great pride in celebrating the independence of our great nation. We certainly hope you and your family will find a fun and safe way to celebrate Independence Day. Please do be fire-wise and remember that fireworks are prohibited.
We’d love to have you join us for the two-day Heritage Festival on Labor Day weekend at Foresthill’s Memorial Park. Stay safe and be well, Friends.
