Livingston’s Annual July 4th, 2020 Celebration (CANCELED)

Out of an abundance of caution, the Livingston July 4th Committee has decided to cancel the July 4, 2020 celebration. We hope all will stay safe, well, and socially distant to help Flatten the Curve and Slow the Spread of COVID-19. 

We look forward to celebrating Livingston’s 84th Annual July 4th Celebration -- including our 27th annual car show -- in 2021!
