Update on Behalf of American Village
2013-07-04

Due to the forecast of a 100% chance of heavy and possibly flooding rains, and due to the American Village’s dependence on using grassy fields for parking for thousands of visitors, we regret it is necessary to cancel our Independence Day celebration.  The Village will be closed to the public today and Friday and will resume its regular public schedule at 10 a.m. on Monday.

 

Further note:  The American Village fields cannot handle parking for thousands of visitors if the heavy rains materialize as forecast.  Such forecasted weather conditions in our parking fields and outdoor venues would pose a threat to the personal safety and property of our visitors. 

 

We hope visitors will come to the Village on weekdays throughout the summer and celebrate America’s independence.
