The Friends of the 4th of July Committee have been meeting to discuss the options for the 2021 4th of July festivities in the City of La Verne. At this time the Committee is weighing all the options as far as the traditional festivities, while acting in accordance with the most current Los Angeles County Public Health Order. We are also looking at alternatives in the event that our normal events do not comply with the Health Order.
