Whittier~Whittier will commemorate Independence Day, Saturday, July 4, with a Flag-Raising Ceremony and Freedom Walk at the Palm Park Greenway Trailhead, 5703 Palm Avenue.

The event will begin with a flag-raising at 8 a.m., featuring patriotic entertainment by the Whittier High School Pep Band and light refreshments.  Representatives from the Armed Forces will be in attendance.


Following the flag-raising, there will be a community procession along the Greenway Trail, beginning at 9 a.m.

"This commemoration allows us to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday, what our independence means to us, and what it costs us, especially in today's world," said Fran Shields, Director of Community Services.

"We invite everyone to come begin July 4 with us, before spending the rest of the day enjoying family and friends," she said.

Residents in Whittier are reminded that private use of fireworks is against the law in Whittier, according to Municipal Code #15.16.010, and could result in a $1,000 fine.  Due to drought conditions, fire danger is high, and residents are asked to report use of illegal fireworks to the Whittier Police Department, (562) 945-8250.

For more information, contact the Whittier Community Center at (562) 464-3430.
