No July 4th Events Planned for the
City of Moreno Valley

Due to budget constraints, the City of Moreno Valley will not hold any July 4th events this year. During last year's development of the current 2010/11 Fiscal Year budget, the City Council removed funding for the annual parade and Family FunFest due to a budget deficit in the City. The budget for the annual July 4th activities in previous years has exceeded $100,000.

At their June 14 Council meeting this week, the Mayor and City Council directed City staff to bring back for their consideration options to form a planning and fund raising committee in hopes of resuming the July 4th activities in 2012.

For more information, please contact Parks and Community Services at 413-3280
