33rd Annual I Love America Summer Celebration

June 30, 2014

In two short days we will be celebrating our 33rd Annual I Love America Summer Celebration! Over the past thirty-three years Vestavia Hills has seen lots of change come from this highly anticipated event. In the midst of change though, our key component still remains: a celebration of our country and community. In years past we have done a few summer celebrations dispersed throughout the summer. However, this year we decided to collaborate the two to make it one grand event. And grand it is! This year will feature the largest amount of sponsors to date, a live orchestra, children’s activities, free swimming and a business-expo with tons of free goodies… what could be better? Perhaps watching one of the most popular animated films of the year (and most likely to date) that will guarantee to make you a little cooler in this hot and humid weather! As the sun goes down we will begin Disney’s animated movie Frozen, scheduled to be shown at 8:15p.mWe look forward to another successful year (with hopes of NO rain!) for Vestavia Hills to come together for love of country and community.
