[ARCHIVED] 4th of July Celebration Sponsored by WestmontAutoMile

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: July 3, 2017
“We are extremely fortunate to have our local car dealerships here in Westmont,” says Mayor Ron Gunter.  “We are grateful for their generous support of our community events.  Without their contribution, the 4th of July Celebration at Ty Warner Park and other events simply would not exist in the fashion they do today.”  The Westmont Auto Mile consists of several Westmont car dealerships that contribute annually towards the success of events like 4th of July, Taste of Westmont, Holly Days, and more.  “We encourage everyone in the community, when it’s time to buy a new or used car, think Westmont,” says Westmont Economic Development Director Larry Forssberg.  “Our cluster of car dealerships in Westmont is unique and we are proud to have so many award-winning businesses in our community.”
On Tuesday, July 4, be sure to bring the family to Ty Warner Park for food, games, beer, live music, free birthday cake, and one of the best fireworks presentations in all of Chicagoland.  Following is this year’s schedule:
