To honor our heroes, the military and their families, first responders, front line workers of all kinds, teachers, artists and the creator each of us, along with our neighbors here in America, there will be small annual Fourth of July Parade. This year’s parade will be socially distanced.
We endeavor to make more resilient a 57 year old tradition started by elementary school teacher Silvia Reeves, in 1963. Her initiative was to give children an opportunity for creative engagement to give families and neighbors a sense of community and to celebrate this great day and the heroes of this great country.
Formation begins at the 3500 block of East Fairmount Street (please park on Palo Verde or Richey) Saturday July 4th, at 6:30am sunrise. The entire procession will take less than one hour and conclude at the newly opened Richey Parklette.
Participants and spectators are welcome. Bring your own water. Wear red, white and blue (or uniform). Please park on Palo Verde or Richey. You may be photographed.
