Taking The Year Off To Reflect
The COVID-19 pandemic means that we can’t safely hold the event, and the recent protests and much-needed discussions about the historical problems of racial inequality lead us to believe that this year’s holiday is better spent reflecting on our history and what it means to be American.
We encourage Park Hill and all of Denver to mark the holiday as they think best, whether that is celebrating at home with friends and family, volunteering, protesting or reaching out to members of your community that you might not have connected with in the past. Because that’s what Park Hill’s annual 4th of July Parade has always been about: creating community.
We commit to spending the coming months speaking to the community to determine what kind of event it wants to see in 2021.
