The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of Fourth of July festivities, including the Homewood parade and the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District's Family Fun Fest, but the two agencies, in collaboration with the village of Flossmoor and Homewood-Flossmoor High School, filled the gap with the "Quarantine Cinema" drive-in movie.

Local residents can get a run-up to their Fourth of July celebrations at the Starry Nights concert Friday night and keep rolling Saturday with the Homewood Fourth of July Parade followed by the Family Fun Fest community picnic.
