City Plans Community Celebration July 9

Mark your calendars for Friday, July 9, 2021. Sheffield Lake will welcome Summer and celebrate Community Day. The Community Civic Council and city are planning a parade and fireworks that day.

The parade will step off at 7 p.m. from City Hall, 609 Harris Road. It will proceed north down Harris to Lake Road and will head east to Shoreway Shopping Center. Several food vendors will be at the shopping center from 6-11 p.m.

Fireworks begin at 10 p.m. They will be set from a barge in the lake at the Boat Launch, directly across the street from Shoreway.

A carnival is not possible this year because vendors did not secure event insurance due to COVID regulations.

Nonetheless the all city and volunteer Civic Council, including City Councilmen Steve Kovach and Rocky Radeff, have worked hard to get COVID in the rearview mirror and reinstitute an event that has been one of Sheffield Lake’s hallmark events more more than 50 years.

Sheffield Lake and Sheffield Village Police and Fire Departments will lead the parade, lights flashing and sirens blaring. Brookside High School Marching Band and Cheerleading Squad will participate as well. Kids standing along the parade route will pocket candy tossed to them by marchers.

Kovach said there is still time to register to march in the parade. Deadline to sign up is Monday, July 5.

For more information, contact Rocky Radeff at [email protected] or Steve Kovach at [email protected].

Rain date for the fireworks is Saturday, July 10.
