The Anaheim Hills Community Council is a non-profit organization created to assist in branding and building a strong community in Anaheim Hills. The Anaheim Hills 4th of July celebration creates connections and camaraderie between the thousands of residents and businesses who attend the day’s events every year.

Now in its 27th year, the 4th of July Celebration starts off with the Firecracker run that attracts approximately 3,000 runners, walkers, spectators, vendors and sponsors. Following that is the pancake breakfast, dog show and parade that leads up to the grand finale, the fireworks show at Peralta Park, where more than 20,000 neighbors, friends and families come together to celebrate the birth of our great nation.

During the Christmas Holidays, we also work with the business community to organize the annual Christmas Tree Lighting in the canyon. This great event provides entertainment for our youth to enjoy the spirit of the holidays, with fresh snow provided for their enjoyment, a petting zoo, Santa’s village and horse and carriage rides. In addition, strolling carolers, the arrival of Santa Clause and finally the lighting of the community tree makes this a fun day for the entire family.

On election years, we provide a non-partisan Candidates Forum to provide an opportunity to meet the candidates seeking their vote for Mayor or City Council. This Forum is essential to our residents to understand the vision of the candidates seeking your vote.
