Celebrating the Fourth of July 2020 IN PLACE!

The Pleasant Hill Fourth of July Commission has organized an annual Independence Day celebration for over four decades and this year is no exception! 

All of us are giving back to our community and doing our part by following California Covid-19 safety guidelines, which means cancelling all events involving large gatherings.  However, you can’t “cancel” the 4th of July and our commission has been busy organizing several new and exciting activities to celebrate this year: 

  • 10AM CHEER – Everyone go outside and yell, scream, bang pots and pans, just MAKE SOME NOISE at 10AM to celebrate the 4th of July!

  • “HAPPY 4TH OF JULY PLEASANT HILL” – Look to the sky starting at 10AM for our 4th of July message to the community with an aerial flyover & banner (pending FAA approval).

  • AUTO TOUR THROUGH PLEASANT HILL HONORING ESSENTIAL WORKERS – Shhhhh! The route is a secret, but at 10AM, go out front, put out a chair and cooler, wave to your neighbors, and maybe a parade will come down your street!

  • PLEASANT HILL FOURTH of JULY PHOTO SUBMISSION – Submit your favorite photos of past 4th of July celebrations to

  • CELEBRATE IN PLACE – Celebrate virtually with the 4th of July Commission on our website featuring a live stream of the auto tour, sing-alongs, special guests, and other ideas for unique ways you can celebrate at home!

We’re looking forward to another exciting 4th of July!  Your support over the years has been amazing and we hope to be back together again as a community in 2021 and many years to come!  THANK YOU PLEASANT HILL!!
