One of the area’s most-famous Fourth of July celebrations looks a little different this year. Brentwood Borough has scaled back its normal parade route and is limiting some of the normal festivities for 2021.

The parade route was redesigned by the Brentwood Volunteer Fire Department and will start at the Brentwood Park entrance at 1 p.m. on July 4. The route will visit nearly 20 streets throughout the borough. There will be no parking restrictions in the borough because the parade will only consist of a firetruck and a car. Two World War II planes will be flying over Brentwood to kick off the parade right at 1 p.m. The annual fireworks display will begin at 9:30 p.m.

While it’s great to get back to some normalcy, the goal for Brentwood is to get back to the huge celebrations residents are used to in 2022. The planning and fundraising is already underway to make next year’s Fourth of July party bigger and better than ever before.

“Funding for this is solely reliable on annual fundraisers, donations from residents, businesses and sponsors,” organizer Melissa Lenigan said. “Due to this past year, we weren’t able to do our main fundraisers, impacting us significantly.”

According to figures released by the Brentwood Fourth of July Committee, a nonprofit organization, costs for the holiday celebration total nearly $40,000.

A GoFundMe page has been created for anybody to donate to the cause. The committee usually sends out mailers each year but has switched the operation to online-only to save on costs. “Any and all donations truly help,” Lenigan said.
