Now in it’s 27th year, the NHHA Independence Day Celebration is a signature event in Northwood Hills. COVID-19 has introduced new challenges this year, but with a little creativity, our neighborhood will still be able to celebrate our Independence safely. Instead of NHHA hosting a parade and festival at Northwood Hills Elementary, our residents will be the hosts and the festivities have the potential to span the entire neighborhood! Homes and yards will be decorated and residents will traverse our streets in golf carts, trucks, Jeeps, and antique and specialty cars, hopefully filled with costumed characters, decorated pets, and festive families.
We’d like to thank our corporate sponsors, who help ensure NHHA is able to organize events like this. We appreciate their support!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Decorate, Decorate, Decorate! Show your patriotism by placing decorations on your house, in your yard, in your trees, in your driveway, etc. Let NHHA know that you’ll be decorating your property so we can include your address on a map that we provide to residents. This is an important aspect, so we ensure participants know to drive by your house. If you or your kids or your pets want to dress up in costume, make sure you’re on the list and that you sit out front on July 4th between 9 and 10:30am so passersby can see you. Want to ensure the most visibility? Get your neighbors to decorate too! The more homes that participate on a street or cul de sac, the more likely people will drive down it.
We know you like showing off your Jeeps and antique cars and other vehicles, so don’t forget to decorate them as well! When you drive through the neighborhood checking out the festive houses, get the heads turning! Don’t be afraid to broadcast patriotic music to let us know you’re coming.
