2020 Crusin’ On The 4th of July
Individual families can decorate their car or golf cart and be a part of a caravan that will “cruise” through the neighborhood at noon on July 4. There will be no theme, so families will be encouraged to be creative and decorate their vehicle in a manner that is appropriate and reflects what they feel is most important about the day and holiday. In addition to celebrating patriotism, some families may choose to honor First Responders, Military or even recognize the fantastic history this holiday holds in The Hills.
In terms of logistics: starting at 12:00pm on July 4, participants will be asked to wait at the end of their driveway or the closest point on the map to the route in their decorated vehicle. Perry Township trustees and Chief Petrozzi have agreed to have Perry Township officers lead the cruise through Worthington Hills. As the cruise passes a participants’ house, they will join at the end of the line. Once the route is complete and all participants have been “collected,” all will complete a final loop around Clubview. Upon the culmination, families will be asked to return to their homes before venturing back out into the community. This will help keep traffic orderly.
Families who prefer not to participate in the cruise will be encouraged to decorate their yard with signs, patriotic decorations, etc., and wave to the cruisers as they pass. It is the hope that this activity will be fun for families and appreciated by neighbors.
We ask that all involved maintain social distancing in respective yards and vehicles and refrain from sharing the traditional 4th of July food and beverages. We also ask that squirt guns and water balloons not be used during the cruise; noisemakers, horns and confetti might be fun alternatives.
Yard Decoration/Yard Float Contest
This contest encourages families in Worthington Hills to decorate their yards with patriotic yard signs, traditional 4th of July decorations, or to make a family yard float. Immediately after the 4th of July cruise, decorated yards will be judged for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize awards for one of following locally owned businesses.

It is our sincere hope that “Cruisin’ on the 4th of July” will provide a fun and unique way for Worthington Hills residents to join in celebrating our Country and Community in a safe, responsible and respectful way.
