In accordance with the terms of Governor Pritzker’s recent Executive Order, which extended the “Stay at Home” order through May 31, 2020, the City of Loves Park regrets to announce that the 2020 Young at Heart Parade and fireworks display has been canceled. These events were scheduled for Saturday, May 23, 2020.

The Young at Heart Parade, sponsored by the City of Loves Park, has signaled the start of summer and has been held on Memorial Day weekend for the last 49 years. The annual fireworks display has also become a highly anticipated family favorite over recent years.

It is unfortunate that these great community events have been canceled this year, but we look forward to seeing everyone at the 2021 Young at Heart parade and fireworks display next year.

For any questions regarding the cancellation of these events, please contact the Loves Park’s Mayor’s Office at 815-654-5030.
